While the remodeled mixed-use Pasona facility is not exactly a secret, the building’s living green facade only indirectly hints at the vast food production going on inside of this combined commercial and agricultural space.
Species-specific HELF, LED and fluorescent lamps are coupled with automated irrigation systems and climate control technologies through that monitor and adjust humidity, temperature and airflow.
The system is optimized both for human occupants by day and plants by night, to satisfy workers and optimize yields, respectively.
“Seasonal flowers and orange trees are planted on the balconies between the double skinned facade, partially relying on natural exterior climate to showcase changing of leaves and colors to the exterior facade. All plants are maintained and harvested by Pasona employees with the help of an agricultural specialist.”
