Project: The Green Entrance
Location: Fatih Mosque, Rozengracht Amsterdam
Assignment: Permanent installation
Design: Studio Wüst Reveco
Photography: Malou Wüstefeld
We were asked to decorate the entrance of the Fatih Mosque to create unity with the meeting space.
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.
