Bathroom with vertical garden


The owner of an Amsterdam canal apartment had to suffer the indignity of just seeing a wall whenever he looked out of his bathroom window, so interior designers i29 fixed that for him: they added a vertical garden to the wall.

This was enough to land them the Bathroom Design Award 2010 in the Home category. (Unfortunately, the entire ‘site’ is made of Flash, so I cannot link to the 2010 page directly. Just click “Winnaars 2010.”)

The other category, Hotel, was won by Marjolein Garritsen for the bathroom in the Ilyushin Il-18 based hotel room we wrote about two weeks ago.

    It makes it look really nice

    I love how the spaces work together, especially the positioning of the sink. Hard area to keep clean, because of it being so white, but the white also reflects the limited natural light and makes what could be a dreary bedroom/bathroom very inviting. Thanks for sharing.

    Good post. Turning a garden on its side to create a verdant, vertical surface not only looks good but promotes wildlife, good air quality and sustainability too. Most living wall designs can work in a home environment and more and more people are installing them.
