Vertical Garden Apartments: Outside-In

October 15, 2011 by

Faced with the challenge of incorporating a garden in the design of an apartment building on a small plot of land, Mexico City-based architecture firm BNKR Arquitectura had a novel solution: they turned the garden on its side.

By folding and wrapping the garden around the three sides of the plot, separating it from the glass-clad building, the living space became open to the full experience of the surrounding vertical gardens.

The result was s sense of “private openness” which offered the inhabitants full view of the building’s exterior while maintaining absolute privacy.
