Grass and gardens in architectural applications

14 January, 2010

As designers work to create innovate and livable spaces, various interesting integrations of natural and artificial vegetation seem to be emerging. Visiondivision’s design for a children’s ‘Hill Hut’ in Stockholm (pictured above) creates the impression of the natural sweeping inside from the outside environment as a carpet of artificial turf spills out of wide glass doors.

In Shenzen, China, Design Systems created this undulating garden bed of (real) grass for the courtyard of a contemporary residence.

Meanwhile, around the world, Patrick Blanc’s many and varied applications of the ‘Vertical Garden’ transform both interior and exterior spaces, such as in the Kanazawa 21st Century Museum (above).

  1. I really love the fresh look of lush greens inside the house. They make the house full of life. I wanted a grass carpet inside my study, but I’m afraid about how to maintain it.
