Aesthetic Contradictions: Basalt Garden

“If we want to enjoy nature, we will take our car and drive to a forest”.

Backyard not as a tiny portion of green but as a place o enjoy sun and rain. A single bush of bamboo, only to prevent the view from outside.

The black granite floor tile of the interior living space is prolonged through rough basalt stones, variable in lenght. The white walls inside are recalled by the translucent polycarbonate fences. To stress the fact that the bamboo is merely a means to get higher than the allowed 2 mt of a fence, it was fenced in by polycarbonate.

Secret gardens, undefined edges.
