Project Description
Plants & Other Materials Used
These series of tropical-looking gardens are situated between two main buildings in the heart of Nicosia. The gardens are surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants and overlooked from ten appartment floors all part of the two buildings. The gardens are lighted by night and feature a waterfall water feature with lillies. The initial requirement from the client was to create a lush environment in each planting area and to consider how it will look from above as well. The concept we came up with included natural-looking planting schemes with various green combinations and splashes of colour, plants that expanded on various heights and angles and a minimal shape-defining element to be seen from above - the big Archontophoenix palms. In simple words, a controlled live and breathing urban jungle grown to be beautiful.
