Green Living Spaces

This London balcony garden belongs to a plant-obsessed traveler returning from Brazil, who craves the lush green of the tropics, and not the harsh realities of inner-city life.
It is inspired by balconies that spill over with plants in an otherwise concrete façade, defiant of their location, bringing joy to all who see them. The exotic feel to the planting is inspired by the garden of Modernist landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx and the walls of the interior are papered with murals from photographs of his garden.
The feature block wall, which allows some light to pass through, brings a retro feel to the space and a striking architectural backdrop to the planting.
