UN PIED A TERRE

Custom garden in Butte aux Cailles

A city garden hidden inside of a collective courtyard. A garden for a dynamic family who would like to get their hands in the soil. The goal was to unify the space and make it more functional with flexible elements. The custom wooden deck becomes a natural extension of the house. Open edges add a practical place for storing firewood. Retaining walls become steps and seats. The plants are a mixture of edibles and shade tolerant perennials.
