Geotextiles help create green clothing shop

June 1st, 2008 / By: / Environmental, Industry News

A multilevel building in Seoul uses geotextiles planted with herbaceous perennials to form the living walls and an extensive green roof system.

The blend of natural and artificial, the new Ann Demeulemeester fashion retail shop in the Gangnam district of South Korea’s capital city brings green building to a new level. Located on an alley in a neighborhood that has seen rapid upscale development, this structure uses green roofs and living walls to cover both external and internal walls, blurring the lines between landscape and building.

The ground floor is dedicated to the haute couture of the Belgian fashion designer Demeulemeester. The second floor is a restaurant, the basement a “multi-shop.”
