LUSH GARDEN OASIS - Small Atrium Garden
This design advances smartly all the space this tightly build urban plot offers. Open views from indoors dictated the atmosphere throughout the home. A small and intimate outdoor space was created in a uniform and soothing expression. Lightness and freshness to the space was built through green color scheme of the vegetation. Because green tones amplified against dark exteriors of the buildings, the lush green atmosphere did not need large amount of plants. Choosing the plants wisely with favoring evergreens, the views to the atrium are beautiful and peaceful throughout the year.

PROJECT no.58 - Garden on a slope
Designing a garden to a long, narrow plot on a slope may sound challenging but actually it offers a lot of design options. Using simple but distinctive shapes (circles, curves and squares) and mixing hard and soft landscaping helps to break up the 'corridor' effect and make the garden seem wider. Dividing the space up into smaller areas, gives each section a different purpose. This is a useful technique especially if your garden is on a slope, like in this design.

EMBRACE '70s - An atrium garden
This 1970's courtyard underwent a complete makeover. As the atrium courtyard opens to the interior through the large windows, we combine the indoor & outdoor space into a seamless whole. Old lawn area was replaced with comfortable living areas for the whole family. Kids sandpit, and home farming units were placed in the courtyard with inventive solutions that are easily adapted to future needs. Color scheme of the materials and vegetation was fitted into a red-green tone of the house in such a way that the whole is at the same time modern and trendy, but respectful of the original architecture.
