The Addleshaw Goddard Junglette Garden

Balcony Gardens

The hardy tropical planting of the balcony mirrors the structural layers of the jungle: the emergent (towering plants), canopy, understorey, and forest floor.

 The design provides a serene sanctuary, shielding residents from the city's relentless commotion. A seating area is enveloped by cascading flora, evoking the splendour of a colossal hanging basket.

Jungle environments.


A striking folded back wall, crafted from recycled paper, echoes the jungle's strata, bringing depth to the space, and the bespoke, unfurling paper chairs are inspired by the unfurling of young fern.

The garden promotes biodiversity with bird nests, integrated bat boxes and a small pond, creating flourishing microcosms and exploring the biodiversity which can be achieved on a balcony. 

The art of geometry threads seamlessly through the garden's design, harmonising nature with aesthetics, creating an imaginative and impactful space.

Key sustainability points

  • Recycled paper is crafted into the durable back wall, decking, and furniture.
  • Pots made from reclaimed containers.
  • After the show the oval-shaped decking will be transformed into dining and coffee tables, ensuring a prolonged, multi-faceted life and the garden will be relocated to a new home.
