Snake Plant Siding @ Firma Casa

snake plant siding

Firma Casa, is a designer furniture store in Sao Paulo, Brazil that is owned by Sonia Diniz Bernardini.  With a recent remodel, Firma Casa turned to SuperLimão Studio , an architecture and design studio, and world renowned designers Fernando and Humberto Campana, for the project.

The design is a new twist on the green wall and vertical gardening. The façade is covered by 3,500 vases with 9,000 green snake plant seedlings. Espada-de-São-Jorge (Sansevieria Trifasciata) (which is commonly called Snake plant in the US) carries with it not only a striking texture when planted on the industrial frame, en masse, but it also is infused with Brazilian culture. It is believed that they (the snake plant) have superstitious powers and can protect from the ‘evil eye’ — so the business and the people within are much safer within.

    Very cool! It looks like they have covered the building in wire grids (like fence material) and then hung each vase from that.
