The joint venture between Landid Property and Brockton Capital has teamed up with graffiti collective Global Street Art to decorate the hoardings of its latest development; The Porter Building in Slough.
Global Street Art has helped organise and paint over 1,000 murals internationally. They brought together a team of eight graffiti artists to paint scenes across the hoardings at The Porter Building. The new art aims to provide an attractive welcome to the city for those arriving by Slough’s main train and bus stations.
Part of the hoardings feature an enchanted forest, a reference to the central atrium at The Porter Building, which will be filled with plants and foliage to create a giant ‘green lung’ that will naturally regulate the air quality of the building.
Chris Hiatt Director of Landid Property said: “Our intention was to bring a bit of magic to Slough, and the ‘Enchanted Forest’ scene that the artists have produced is truly stunning and will certainly leave a strong impression to anyone that visits the Slough train and bus stations. It’s a particularly apt scene for The Porter Building, as we have designed it to be an exemplar for sustainability and wellbeing in the workplace.
“We must extend a huge thanks to the artists, Astek, Zadok, Busk, Oliver Switch, Hicks, Spore, Sky High and Trafik. They are some of the most talented aerosol artists in the UK and made a superb team.
“We thoroughly enjoyed linking up with Global Street Art for this project at The Porter Building, and we’ve been so pleased with the positive reactions and engagement on social media and from commuters who take an extra second to see the murals. We hope The Porter Building inspires similar sentiments when it opens in 2017.”
