The ambience of the entrance slows you down and brings you in a soothing mood, stimulating reflecting and relaxing energy.
We placed three sustainable corten steel planters with a natural brown-orange rusty look, each on opposite sides. The middle planter is provided with a waterfall with rotating running water. The sound of water is calming and provides a soothing atmosphere for our minds.
The planters are planted with vegetation where a look is created between desert and oasis atmosphere, aiming to evoke recognisability. This includes the Aloe Vera, Dracaena and Yukka plant. By creating a mirrored setup on both sides, the entrance radiates tranquillity. The combination between the rusty planters and the natural stone wall and floor provides an organic look.
