Since we are on the North facade, we use the South facade which absorbs most of the sun to make openings. In this way we permit the most sun rays possible to pass through trellis.
Maquette 1:5 Garden in Process.
By studying the position of the sun between April and May (the time of the construction process) the optimal position for every plant could be decided. This is done in relation to the needs of every plant when it comes to sun and water. For example, the facades the most sunny are ideal for plants with great need of light.
A First study of the site in relation to the sunlight rays which is later analysed relating it to the plants to be planted.
Aromatic plants are planted on the bottom part in order to be able to collect their leaves, whereas the plants on the top are different types of flowers.
The tables above show the needs of each plant. We created them in order to sort out the best way to grow up and take care of each plant.
The plan of the pots on each level of the garden with all the different plants.
