London Heathrow Installs Garden Gate in T3

Passengers flying from Gate 25 in London Heathrow’s Terminal 3 will get to see a garden of 1,680 plants, including the English native Ivy and Peace Lily.

 Heathrow’s “Garden Gate”, installed by urban greening specialists Biotecture, will be trialled for the next 6 months. If the trial is a success, Heathrow will explore implementing Garden Gates across the airport.

Richard Sabin, Director of Biotecture, said, “The Garden Gate at Heathrow is the latest, and perhaps most iconic, living wall representing the advancement of eco-technologies in the UK. The world’s major cities are increasingly investing in green infrastructure, and the Garden Gate, both technically and ecologically, is cutting edge for its ease of installation, unique plant selection and LED lighting system. As the nexus of transit and technology, transportation hubs are ideal locations for green infrastructure to become an investment in public health and wellbeing.”

On average, 287,274 passengers go through Gate 25, Terminal 3, every year.
