Cabinet of Curiosities

The parameters of a design are often the most informing aspects a design process, the more specific requirements the more interesting the outcome. Brief: How to create a living catalogue or library for rare shrubs and builds in a narrow space? Working in collaboration with Philip Smith of O2 Landscapes, Philip and I discussed the idea of a cabinet to store living plants. The form allows for each pot to get enough light and water without taking up space, the top row have a slopped angle on the outward face to ensure light reaches the lower level. The sloped face also allows the top plants to drain into the lower planters. The weighty troughs on the bottom anchor the free-standing planters above. Photos: Edward Smith
