Tensile has specialist experience in designing and installing architectural mesh, cabling and rigging systems for green facades and vertical gardens. Junglefy grows, designs, installs and maintains all types of living infrastructure systems including green walls, green roofs, green facades and podiums. The two companies are now collaborating on a series of green facade projects, combining their unique strengths and skills to add the green edge to the built environment.
Having worked in the horticulture and construction industry since 2003, Junglefy is focussed on good design combined with functionality and sustainability. Through innovation, research and experience, the company has acquired expertise in living infrastructure projects, with ample knowledge of the right systems to work with and the best plants to use in each assignment. By identifying the best combination, Junglefy has developed an effective way to increase the number of plants in Australia’s urban environment, providing healthier places to live and work in with improved air quality.
Junglefy and Tensile: The beginning of a solid partnership
Having known each other for a long time, the founders of Junglefy and Tensile began their professional collaboration with the iconic One Central Park building (OCP). While Tensile provided the cabling, Junglefy installed the plants and systems, with both companies continuing to maintain the green facade to this day.
Following the success of the first project, the two companies have since collaborated on several commissions including Westfield Bondi, Advanx carpark, Bijou apartments, Atlassian fitout and Superyachts carpark. They are currently working on Duo, the building next door to OCP currently under construction.
This collaboration has resulted in the two partners identifying opportunities to enhance the design vision for the integration of plants into each building project, helping deliver creative and cost-effective outcomes for their clients.
Why Junglefy works with Tensile
Junglefy’s extensive knowledge about living infrastructure systems, particularly green facades, complements Tensile’s strengths in designing structural equipment to work specifically with plants. Their collaboration not only reduces potential installation issues but also ensures clients get a design that is functional, aesthetically beautiful and easy to maintain.
