Vertical Gardens

Working for architects made me appreciate not only gorgeous interiors but also historical and modern buildings created by talented professionals. Being an owner of Organic Interiors and loving everything natural and green, I am always on a look out for something close to nature and i am absolutely in love with this stunning architecture and vertical gardens used in the interior and exterior. Here is amazing selection from Vogue Living, all designed done by french botanist Patrick Blanc

The Oasis D'Aboukir in Paris.

Trio Apartments in Sydney.

A private commission in Sainte-Geneviève-des-Bois, Paris.

A long green wall stretches down a corridor at the Sofitel Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

Blanc's 'Le Ciel Vert' installation at the Garden Art Exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris in 2013.

Patrick Blanc's own home in Paris is a jungle of vines and cascading plants.

The lush 'Green Symphony' interior green wall at Taipeh Concert Hall in Taiwan.

Also designed in collaboration with Jean Nouvel, Blanc created a hypercolour effect for the cascading gardens of Boas de Ibiza in Ibiza, Spain.

Provided they have a structure to attach to, Blanc's vertical gardens require no soil to grow. The plants, including 380 species, survive on carbon dioxide, water, light, and nutrients, which can be dispersed to the plants electronically. Blanc believes sky gardens will become increasingly necessary in the future, as cities become more densely populated and expand skyward. Their benefits include thermal insulation, natural air purification and the introduction of biodiversity into the heart of the city.
