The patio garden consists of two parts, separated by a light-blue wall with vertical cut-outs. The wall provides intimacy and opportunities to see through to other parts of the garden. It offers a window to the cosy sitting area, without fully exposing all of the garden’s strengths. On the front side of the wall, water streams through minimalistic stainless-steel tubes. The lighting creates a dynamic spectacle of light and shadows. Large cement tiles lead to the home, flanked by large planters with perennial decorative grasses.
The partially closed-off lounge area behind the wall with the see-through cut-outs has been decorated with comfortable couches and an imposing fire table. It is all set out on a ‘floating’ wooden platform made of outdoor parquet. To the left, three light-blue columns appear to have run away from the dividing wall—a very playful effect. The whimsical olive trees in the rear corner give a Mediterranean touch to the space. In combination with the character of the other vegetation, the plants here create a strong sense of structure in this patio garden.
