Hap Seng Consolidated Berhad (HSCB) via its wholly-owned subsidiary Hap Seng Land Sdn Bhd (HSL), has made its way into the Malaysia Book of Records today for the ‘Highest Indoor Green Wall’. Sprouting with lush flora in Menara Hap Seng 3, the indoor green wall boasts a beautiful contrast between the natural landscape and the architectural feat of Menara Hap Seng 3.
The natural daylight brought in by the state-of-the-art green wall, creates a tranquil and nature-infused atmosphere for occupants and visitors.
Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), the world-class architects headquartered in Chicago, Menara Hap Seng 3 features a 91.55-metre high indoor green wall, spanning vertically across all 20 levels of office space. Amassing over 27,000 individual pots comprising 10 different plant species, this indoor green wall funnels sunlight into every nook and cranny of the building, thereby creating a lush and invigorating working environment for all occupants of Menara Hap Seng 3.
