Architect Tetsuo Kondo designed ‘A Path in the Forest’, a temporary installation that was found in the Kadriorg Park near Tallinn, Estonia. Kondo created a 95-meter (311-foot) walkway suspended among some of the park’s 300 year-old trees.

 

We have a very exciting urban garden in the making and this sculptural fire from Glamm Fire will be the cherry on the cake.
Stunning in design, beautifully finished and exquisitely detailed in Corten steel, the fire also uses Bioethanol, which is 100% green.

We cannot wait to see this in place.

Better known for his fashion and still life photography, Phillippe Jarrigeon fell in love with the gardens at Château de Marqueyssac whilst location scouting and captured these enchanting images for Pin Up magazine.

Insanely surreal and appealing to the child, adult and mad hatter in all of us.

If you happen to be in the Alps from 14 July to 30 September 2016, Hauser & Wirth presents an exhibition of outdoor sculptures by Alexander Calder.

Calder made these sculptures on a monumental scale, it is therefore quite fitting that they be exhibited in Gstaad’s stunning mountainous surroundings. We particularly love the angular grey beasts for their strong shadows and industrial feel.

There are so many reasons for us to long for a trip to Japan, not least because of their wonderful ancient art of garden design.

Hoshinoya Karuizawa is a stunning hotel located in Karuizawa, Nagano, Japan.

The landscaped water gardens were designed by Hiroki Hasegawa. There is a natural hot spring at the heart of the hotel which sits in a valley at the foot of Mt. Asama. There are beautiful ancient trees, a river, small connecting bridges and winding scenic paths. The needs of the hotel and the existing natural environment are considered beautifully in the design, which is a triumph of serenity and meandering exploration.

What a wonderful place to rest ones head, cleanse the soul and inspire the mind.
