The Blue Garden

Balcony Gardens

The Blue Garden celebrates what is possible in a small space and the joys of being alone in it. The planting wraps entirely around the balcony, creating a fully immersive experience. In this age of self-reflection, with more of us living alone, the garden evokes the feeling of being surrounded by nature, our vision saturated with green, right into the city. The vivid block colours and vibrant planting are uplifting and transportive, perhaps reminding us of warmer climates. The garden is designed as a solitary experience – for meditation, contemplation and reflection – as we should all enjoy time by ourselves.
