Project Overview

Naturalist, in collaboration with West Virginia University, undertook the creation of a bespoke 8'x 5' preserved moss wall, housed within a meticulously crafted walnut frame. This project aimed to blend artistry with sustainability, providing an immersive botanical experience while harmonizing with the university's environmental ethos.

The culmination of this project resulted in a stunning botanical focal point that enhances the ambiance of West Virginia University's environment.
