This year’s first GardenRoomStyle Moodboard – w1/2023 has arrived on the scene. It provides for some indoor garden inspiration, the outdoors is currently conducive for that. From banana plants, to psychadelic greenroom, to conservatory history – as per usual green space design is full of gorgeous creativity.
GardenRoomStyle Moodboard – w1/2023
- How amazing. A former car park in Singapore’s financial district has now been transformed into a 51-storey retail and commercial high-rise. What makes it special in my mind is that the overall vertical softscape of the Green Oasis mimics the plant hierarchy of tropical rainforests; the hierarchical leaf growth of the plants is in direct proportional relationship to light availability within the vegetation layers. PLENTY of greenery going on here. Designed by BIG and CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati.
- On hols in Málaga, Spain I noticed banana plants outdoors left, right and centre. So exotic they look. In a hostile climate, Strelitzia nicolai can provide the same vibe as a potted, indoor plant.
- Came across an article about Phyto Studio; a niche landscape architecture firm specialising in ecological horticulture. Fascinating stuff. Like the focus on long-term, non-trend, resilient, emotionally-resonant landscapes.
- Some (indoor) green space have all the cool. In this case, psychadelic cool if you ask me. The organic shapes and coloured stained glass here makes a total WOW-impact. The Nautilus is designed by Mexican architect Javier Senosian.
- The Conservatory: A Celebration of Architecture, Nature, and Light celebrates the patrons and designers who advanced the technology and architectural majesty of these light-filled structures. Which are fab to explore all year round.
- Theaterism. An interesting and appropriate vocabulary used as a guiding principle to encourage interaction and participation of public life in the design of Paradise Walk in Shanghai, China.
