WORLD FLOWER GARDEN SHOW 2015, JAPAN: HOME GARDEN
A GREAT UNION OF TWO CITIES (2ND RUNNER-UP)
This uniquely designed residential garden tells the story of a Singaporean working professional living in Japan. Although well assimilated into the Japanese culture, the designer never forgets his simple abode in Singapore because of its strong cultural roots.
Although small in footprint, the shoebox garden is designed to be both contemporary and rustic at the same time and retains the charm of the past, present and future. The designer maximizes the available spatial elements to create a clutter free space where nature is introduced back into the man-made environment.
Through a palette of tropical and sub-tropical plants, decorative furniture and cultural items from the best of both worlds, the exterior is vibrantly planted with an array of warm coloured plants to attract attention, create positive energy and excitement while the interior is decorated with cool coloured plants to invoke feelings of tranquility and harmony for relaxation of the eyes, mind, body and soul.
