Landscape architecture project for residence in São Paulo, featuring tropical plants and a large-scale vertical garden which occupies the full length of the plot and transforms what would otherwise simply be a boundary wall into an exuberant green corridor.
The house entrance is composed of a garden with species like Xanthosoma sagittifolium and a beam planted with trailing ivy, while the patch outside the kitchen is planted with Cyperus alternifolius and aromatic herbs in pots.
The starring vertical garden was created on a bespoke support system designed by Oficina2mais. It functions as a green background that can be contemplated from various viewpoints in the house. The carefully designed lighting system complements the landscape design and renders different scenes according to time of the day.
Project published in the Brazilian magazine Arquitetura & Construção in June 2016 and in the Homes supplement of newspaper Estadão on 20 September 2015.
