Designed with the aesthetics of natural elements in mind, this landscape design was also carefully planned to complement the interior design and architecture, integrating the garden with various living and working spaces.
A marvel of engineering.

We're purposefully creating an environment to defuse the stress of modern life. It's our special romantic getaway. To have a garden like this in the middle of the city - we just love it.

The process of design and installation was one of firsts and bests. On Kurisu's initial visit to the site, he was struck by the unique opportunity it presented to a landscape designer - fashioning a Japanese garden in the sky, complete with water features and rock and boulder hardscaping to compliment the evergreen "forest" they'd be creating.
