Live Project: Leaflike Brings Nature Indoors at the University of Huddersfield

We’re thrilled to be part of the incredible Daphne Steele Building project at the University of Huddersfield. This isn’t just any building – it’s home to the National Health Innovation Campus, which aims to improve health outcomes and drive innovation in healthcare locally and globally.


This first-of-its-kind building is built to WELL Platinum standard, designed to prioritise the health and well-being of everyone who steps inside.


So, how does Leaflike fit in?

We’re bringing the outdoors in! Our team is installing stunning preserved moss walls to transform this vibrant space, enhancing well-being and boosting productivity. 


Fire Safety First: How We Won the Project

Stringent fire safety standards at the University, especially for their grand atrium, required potential suppliers to prove their green walls wouldn’t compromise these strict criteria. We’re proud that our fire-rated preserved moss (yes, fire-rated!) came out on top – which is a key reason we won this project. This shows that Leaflike can make things beautiful and safe.


Why This Project Matters

At Leaflike, we champion holistic design, where environmental impact is considered from the beginning. This project perfectly aligns with our commitment to creating healthy and sustainable spaces. The Daphne Steele Building exemplifies this ethos with green walls and nature-inspired elements integral to its design, highlighting the University’s dedication to a healthy and innovative campus.


We’re thrilled to be collaborating with two industry leaders to bring this vision to life:


AHR Architects, renowned for their innovative and sustainable designs
BAM Construction, known for its commitment to meeting the highest standards in design and construction.


It’s a collaborative effort to create an environment that’s beautiful, inspiring, environmentally responsible, and future-proof.


Stay Tuned!

This project marks a significant step forward in our mission to seamlessly blend nature and architecture. We can’t wait to share our progress with you. The facility opens later in 2024, so keep an eye out for updates…
