Living wall systems are a relatively new form of fa├žade cladding treatment on buildings. Bringing a host of benefits such as added biodiversity, they also have the potential to aid the thermal efficiency of a wall construction by offering an extra layer of thermal resistance. Yet few studies have been conducted to ascertain the thermal influence of living wall systems can have on existing buildings.
