This viewing platform by Austrian architect Zamp Kelp, was created for the EXPO 2000 in Hanover, Germany. Curiously sited on the border of an old quarry, the platform juxtaposes a statuesque staircase made using quarry stone with a spectacular cantilevered glass and steel platform. Architectural studio Cooke Fawcett designed a 3.5-metre-wide and thirty-two-metre-long raised platform, that spans the width of a multistorey car park in Peckham, south-east London. Sited on the car park’s rooftop deck, the elevated steel and hardwood timber promenade was completed this year. Called the Peckham Observatory, it offers views across the London skyline as well as the capital’s much overlooked southern neighbourhoods.
Don’t forget about the big impact that can be made with rocky features such as large stones. If you’re lucky enough to have them naturally occurring in your yard, definitely use them to your advantage. If not, you can get help from your local landscaping company. Don’t attempt to move hefty boulders and rocks on your own. Some even require a crane when it comes to installation, so making a thoughtful decision on their placement is key. Looking to add more than native greenery to your modern yard? Planters are the perfect way to experiment with growing a range of plants in a smaller setting. Interested in growing plants that won’t survive the winter in your climate? Put them in a planter that you can move inside during the coldest months of the year. Not sure you’re up for planting an assortment of higher-maintenance plants in the ground? Try them out in a pot or planter.
With summer firmly here, life outside seems more enticing than spending time indoors. And it is the backyard, patio, or the poolside deck that takes up most of our time each evening, as we bask in the warmth of dusk. It helps to have a luxurious array of outdoor décor that serves you well in the months to come, as you plan for fall parties and even early winter celebrations in the yard. Few offer a better range of luxurious and enduring outdoor décor like Tribu and today we shed a light on their gorgeous Mood Collection designed by Studio Segers. An ultra-luxurious, resilient and all-weather collection of outdoor décor, we first stumbled upon Mood as we took a look at the exquisite Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza. The striking collection in wood comes with a handwoven Tricord body that is water-resistant. Each of the lounge chairs, daybeds and club chairs comes in either stonegrey or earthbrown, ensuring that your outdoor décor has a natural vibe and blend into the earthen landscape. The best part about this versatile outdoor seating series is how you can leave them uncovered even on those drizzly days, without worrying about damage from rain. Plush cushions, smart low benches from the Mood collection and beautiful lighting can be used to complete your charming and relaxing patio for the perfect staycation. A great way to enjoy the sights and sounds around you as you bask in warm summer glow; even while being draped in luxury.
Succulents are an ever-popular planter choice, and many modern design lovers create succulent gardens and plantscapes that feature a range of plants in different colors and forms. Reserving a couple of planters for seasonal flowers will give you a spot for an ever-evolving garden of blooms. Don’t be afraid to get inspiration from commercial landscaping. Office buildings and outdoor shopping centers are just two of many locations that often showcase large planters filled with flowers. Note the different color combinations, and snap photos of your favorites so you can take them to your local nursery to find out more about the plants.
