Renovation of a Victorian house in the historic Ennismore Gardens in London. Facing an enclosed garden, its interiors were dark and heavy. A process of removal of decorations. Light screen and plants.
To create a visual continuity with the gardens outside, a “phytothèque” or plant wall was conceived: a series of geometric volumes interlocked. They function as planters, display for art, shelves and seating, inspired by Wardian cases.
A gradual transition from the garden (plants) to the domestic (objects) is achieved in this sequence.
