You’re cordially invited to join CSI East Bay-Oakland Chapter for our January chapter meeting, featuring a presentation from David Brenner of Habitat Horticulture titled “Critical Factors for Indoor Green Walls”.
David Brenner, Founding Principal + Lead Designer Habitat Horticulture
David Brenner is a leader in designing world-class living wall systems with commissions from Fortune 100 companies and architectural projects of international renown. Trained at California Polytechnic University and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London, David’s expertise with growing mediums and plant species interaction led to the development of proprietary and durable techniques that firmly established Habitat Horticulture as a force in vertical garden design. David sees his work as an integral part of a public shift in consciousness towards the restorative effect of plants on health and well-being. As a dedicated collaborator on residential, commercial, and public spaces of any size, David brings deep expertise and artistic intent to enhance the sensory and environmental impact of each architectural and interior design project. David speaks on the benefit of living walls in urban architecture and his work has been featured in publications such as Fast Company, CBS, Wall Street Journal, Dwell, Architectural Digest, Robb Report, Wired, Work Design Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, and San Francisco Magazine. In 2019 he was honored to join the 2019 Class of the “Top 40 Under 40” by The San Francisco Business Times.
