The Window Garden
For those individuals who are living in an apartment or a condo and love the idea of having a garden, this may be for you.
Barreau & Charbonnet, a design company in France, created Volet Végétal, a garden that hangs outside of an apartment or condo, providing a little piece of “land” for those living in a concrete jungle, without so much as a balcony to house a few potted plants. In 2012 it was entered in the Jardin Jardin design contest in Paris and is currently in development for distribution. Volet Végétal is mounted on the exterior of an apartment window and lies perpendicular to it, allowing for optimal sunlight, and creating a “green view” over the city for homeowners. When plants need watering and tending to, it’s pulled up to fit within the window frame for easy reach.
So whether you are in an apartment, condo or living in a detached home, everyone has the opportunity to plant a garden they will be happy with and proud of with this innovative invention.
