Inspired by the calming effect of traditional white gardens, this balcony design provides a beautiful, functional, and tranquil outdoor space to escape the confines of apartment living, no matter the outside view.
Illusion: Strategically placed antique mirror panels create the illusion of a larger space and is designed to entice you outside.
Senses: Senses are evoked throughout the year using lush evergreens, white flowers with intoxicating scents include magnolia, gardenia, jasmine, and in winter, daphne with a variety of foliage shapes and textures.
Functional: The space is also designed to be functional. Delicious culinary herbs and pops of colour with edible flowers inspire you to cook, and the delight of finding summer berries, excite your tastebuds. Hardier Mediterranean herbs and pollinator flowers pack the 2-metre length of balustrade planter boxes and provide more culinary accompaniments as well as a haven for urban bees.
Protection and Privacy: Bifold plantation shutters and a sheer curtain provide versatility and privacy for the space to be used year-round, gracefully screening off less than ideal views, neighbours, and summer night mosquitoes.
Retreat: A cosy nook for retreating in quiet solitude with a cuppa during the day, easily transforms into an elegant, intimate space for dining or entertaining at night by extending the gate leg table and use of fold out chairs.
Low Maintenance: Low maintenance, yet with enough hands-on gardening to satisfy your passion for plants and gain the health benefits of connecting with nature.
All this in less than three square metres of floor space.
