The green stop is an entirely domestic innovation by InnoGreen. The green stop was born out of a desire to develop a green space that enhances biodiversity, and where all residents can enjoy the greenery. Located in an urban environment, the green stop offers a touch of nature, a communal feeling, and something nice to do - all wrapped up in one. All parts of the green stop are made of Finnish wood in Finland.
Thanks to its modular design, each green stop can be customized according to its use and users. The green stop is a fast, park-like solution that requires no foundation or expensive remodeling. It is designed to be placed in an urban environment on an already built surface, such as asphalt or paving. The green stop brings coziness and shelter to large plazas as well as much-needed activity and greenery to small apartment complex yards. Our experts will help you choose the right size and location for the green stop.
“The green stop was tested for the first time at Malminkartano Square in Helsinki in the summer of 2021. The green stop received excellent feedback, and the pilot project contributed to developing the product further. Now the green stop is finally available to everyone. Thanks to its modular structure, the green stop is scalable to a wide range of indoor and outdoor spaces and is always customized for its users,” says Mikko Sonninen, team leader of InnoGreen’s product development team.
Above all, the green stop is an easy solution. Once the modules, functionalities and plants for the green stop have been selected, we build the stop on site from start to finish. We help with the maintenance of the green stop, and we also change seasonal plants according to your wishes. When winter comes, we dismantle the green stop and take the elements to a dry winter storage to wait for the next season. All you need to do is enjoy the feeling of being close to nature.
The structure of the green stop allows for plenty of greenery in the form of green walls, a green roof, and plantings. Natural plant choices also attract butterflies, bees and other insects to the green stop. The structure allows residents to plant their own herbs or harvest mushrooms in the fall. The green stop lets the light through and looks neat even when there are plenty of plants. In short, it has something for everyone.
“In the pilot version of the green stop we had a chessboard and a blackboard. Both were in active use. It’s possible to combine a variety of things and activities with the green stop. Some wish to have a lush place to find peace and calm, while others may opt for different activities surrounded by greenery. By planning the green stop together with the customer, we create a versatile and inviting green space,” says Mikko.
