Aquaponic Garden – The expansion of the terraced garden into the vertical
The wall between detached houses is designed as a living ‘aquaponic wall’.
Excrements of the living fish from a basin at the bottom of the wall fertilize the planted wall: a vegetable garden, a ‘shelf’ with perennials and a swimming herbal gutter in the garden table.
Vegetables and herbs are produced, a dense, green wall swallows sounds, binds fine dust and offers insects and birds a home.
Lawn in the gaps of the clinker surface makes the rainwater infiltrate.
A roof-shaped tree, hedges of apple berries and ornamental apples, a mossy basket with grasses and a flowerbed are an experience for human users, insects and birds.
