Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) June 11, 2013
The delicious burgers, crinkled golden fries and fresh frozen custards aren’t the only things that have people talking about the newest Shake Shack in Kuwait’s Al Fanar Mall. The popular restaurant chain’s seventh location in the Middle East also impresses customers with its fantastic setting and design, which features an impressive 286 sq. foot living Green Wall that boasts 1,326 plants.
Shake Shack, an iconic burger brand with locations in and outside of the United States, sought the help of GSky Plant Systems to create and install a Green Wall that would be a central design element in the restaurant. Prominently placed in the restaurant’s stairway passage leading up to the sitting area, the GSky Versa Green Wall is highly visible and immediately connects the brand’s dedication to green initiatives. It is a bold, environmentally conscious statement that perfectly emphasizes Shake Shack’s philosophy to “Stand for Something Good.”
“Shake Shack’s Green Wall is a central design element that sums up their core values in one piece,” says Chad Sichello, President of GSky. “Their dedication to green initiatives is very much part of their core values – and a living Green Wall is a perfect way to convey that in their design. The Green Wall sets a welcoming, fresh, lively tone for the store, complimentary to the restaurant’s mouthwatering classics. And it provides the benefits of eating in a greener environment –a place to breathe in extra oxygen while being surrounded by a cool, green backdrop.”
There are many benefits to incorporating a GSky Green Wall into a restaurant’s design. Green Walls provide a sense of harmony with nature and make a unique artistic statement. “Think of a Green Wall as canvas with plants as palettes to create a living work of art,” Sichello says. “Plant materials have different textures and heights, which can add a variety of dimension to the Green wall.”
More than just decorative in nature, the Green Wall brings the city’s landscape to the restaurant’s interior along with the benefits of plants. They improve the air quality indoors and out, naturally filtering out air. The process of photosynthesis consumes CO2 and releases O2, which gives people more energy-rich oxygen.
