Welcome to the amazing Green Walls project by SVOYA Studio!
This incredible 2014 home was built in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine, and features living green walls on one of the sides of the open concept main living space, which includes the living room, dining room, and kitchen.
Green walls are walls that are partially or completely covered with vegetation, and contain soil to assist the plants in growing. Most green walls also feature an integrated irrigation system that makes owning one of these an aesthetic joy, rather than another chore.
Green walls are also called living walls or vertical gardens, although the latter tends to refer more to outdoor green walls.
Note that these green walls are true green walls, which have soil supporting the plants across the entire face of the wall, while green facades have soil only at the base of the wall and support the plants using a trellis.
As seen above, each green wall panel rests between a set of glass doors that lead out onto a large terrace. The vibrant green and texture of the walls adds an unique flavor to this contemporary, open concept space.
As you peruse this beautiful home, look for the ways the rooms reflect their respective occupants, particularly the bedroom. There is no shortage of individuality in any of the rooms of this home!
Perhaps our favorite design element is the mixture of organic elements with inorganic furniture and fabrics. We particularly love the rich wood grain of the floors with the chevron living room rug.
Be sure to look closely at each bedroom and note the use of texture and pattern.
We hope you enjoy the gallery!

Entry to the home is marked by a beautiful wooden accent wall with two pendant lights and a large gradient painting. Beneath the painting are two minimalistic cube seats. Small ceiling lights are arranged flush with the ceiling and light the length of the hallway, which provides access to all of the bedrooms and bathrooms.
As we continue along the length of the hallway, we see the opening into the main living area of the home. Opposite sides of the hall are painted in different shades of gray, which contrast and complement the matte black doors.
As we approach the entrance to the dining room, we see that the left wall transitions back to a rich wooden panel. This is also our first glimpse of the green walls that give this home its moniker.
From this angle, we can see the entirety of the dining room, which sits squarely between the living room and the lovely kitchen. The kitchen is in sleek minimalistic white and rich, warm-toned wood.
If we move around the table to the left, we can see the way each vertical garden is lit, making them incredibly vibrant, especially in the evening. We can also see the enormous light above the dining table, which contrasts with the much more minimal lights above the kitchen’s island.
This angle allows us to see the open shelving on the side of the cabinets, along with several small stools. We can also admire the immense texture the green walls add to the room.
Moving into the kitchen, we see the wine cooler built into the two-toned kitchen island. The preparation area matches the white of the cabinetry, while the narrow bar area is in a beautiful, rich wood.
Looking out over the kitchen island, we can see through to the living room area, which features a wooden accent wall, a floating shelf, and low profile furniture. The home features many double glass door exits to a wrap-around terrace, and each of these has a pull-down shade to protect the residents’ privacy.
We move into the formal living room, which features an L-shaped beige sectional in linen. A contemporary chevron rug graces the floor, upon which sits a coffee table carved from a cross-section of tree trunk. This adds another organic element to the room.
From this angle we get a better view of the wooden accent wall and the varying shades throughout it. The simple, minimalistic shelving doubles as an entertainment center.
Moving into the master bedroom, we can see the unique, individual style of the occupant. Minimalist and industrial, yet softer details balance out the rougher ones and adds visual interest. We particularly love the bedside lamps.
The next room is as different from the former as it could possibly be. A rich pink and gray plaid rug covers the hardwood flooring. The room has a single accent wall in white brick, which plays host to a number of framed pictures, art, and a small mirror. Floor-to-ceiling windows are framed by matching curtains.
The room also contains two woven bean bags and an elegant floral chandelier. Two sets of double doors lead out onto the terrace and connect the space to the main living area.
We move back into the master bedroom, showing the full size of the room. Heavy drapes can be used to block all light coming in through the windows at night, and a soft woven pouf is a nod to the child’s room across the hall.
We leave you with a close up at the industrial accent wall behind the soft, warm textures of the bedding and the upholstered headboard.
