Bringing the outdoors inside and adding green space is a challenge for anyone living in a dense, urban setting. Design firm AE5 partners had this same hurdle on their Apartment T project in Milan, Italy.
Designers discovered that the apartment’s a generously-sized terrace served as the perfect canvas for a very large vertical garden, where plants could bloom and add color to the space year round. But rather than stopping at one vertical garden, several were added throughout the apartment, lending tranquility, vibrancy, and a hint of nature at every turn.
Flooring made from teak was added throughout to complement the apartment’s greenery. AE5 partners also customized some of the furniture in the home. To make the home feel light and bright, furniture is mostly white so that the spaces would appear to be more open.
With perennial plants embedded into the home’s new gardens, occupants will enjoy continuous flowering throughout the year. It will also help blend the boundaries of interior and exterior spaces.
