The Manly Vale commuter car park is part of the NSW Government’s transport solution for Sydney’s northern beaches. This multi-storey car park at Manly Vale on the B-Line bus route will provide 150 car spaces for commuters to park their car and travel on the B-Line bus.

The car park is the first in the world to use Junglefy’s latest innovation; a rotating Breathing Wall. The Breathing Wall panels rotate to provide easy and safe access for ongoing maintenance of the plants. The rotating panels will provide clean air and noise reduction for locals as well as providing an aesthetic design for otherwise bland-looking building.

James Griffin MP, Member for Manly, said “This is an exciting step towards creating more sustainable designs for infrastructure and we are excited to be working with one of Australia’s leading living infrastructure specialists, Junglefy, to provide a green solution for the Northern Beaches.”

Our Role

Junglefy created the innovative new rotating Breathing Wall model as a solution to assist with safe and easy maintenance of the plants. We constructed the Breathing Walls and installed all the plant modules on three sides of the building. Junglefy will also carry out regular ongoing maintenance of the plants.

Key Innovation

As the Manly Vale car park is on a major road, providing regular maintenance for the plants would present safety issues for our maintenance team. The rotating Breathing Wall panels were developed as a bespoke design specifically for this project, which would mean plants could be installed and maintained year-round, in a safe and efficient way. This innovative new design extends the application of Breathing Wall and green walls to many areas that would have traditionally been too difficult to include vertical gardens.
