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.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

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