Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority wanted to add to the bustling atmosphere of The Rocks, with a public Green Wall to revitalise an otherwise unused space underneath the Cahill Expressway. This busy thoroughfare attracts large numbers of domestic and overseas visitors, who now enjoy the benefits of bringing beauty and nature back into our cities.

Our Role

Junglefy created a bespoke steel frame for the curved and slightly cambered Cahill Expressway pylon host wall. Additionally, we were responsible for the light study analysis on both walls, which incorporated LED technology. Junglefy currently maintains both of these green walls which are thriving in their urban environment.

Key Innovation

Junglefy installed a custom powder-coated, laser cut, curved drip tray to the green wall, as well as custom irrigation set-up in a lockable cabinet and advanced dual purpose LED grow lights on a specified curved track to match the curve of the green wall.
