Q.Type of ivy that could grow on a brick column in an indoor and outdoor environment?

We have a few questions that we need help with and we were hoping that you could help us. We are designing a multifamily building in Washington, D.C. and we would like in incorporate ivy into our design. We would like to plant the ivy on brick columns (4’x 20’) on the exterior courtyard and in the double height atrium. The only source of light that is in the atrium is indirect light. Here are the some questions we have:

1) Do you have any suggestion on the species/types of ivies that look like the Boston Ivy that would thrive/flourish in Washington, D.C. year round?
2) What type of ivies that will flourish but not affect the integrity of the brick and mortar?
3) What type of ivies that will flourish in an indoor environment?
4) What is the minimum and maximum soil depth and volume required per brick column (4’x 20’)?

Attached is a render photo of our atrium design. Could you please take a look and help us?
