Project Drivers




A continuous tapestry

Set within a very unique design concept, the Viritopia design team put their heads together to create two living walls - one interior and one exterior - that flowed seamlessley in a continuous tapestry, seperated only by the specialist Exact Architectural Glazing.  The extension was designed to create an open-plan entertainment space which brings the garden into the home.

Both walls only seem to improve with age and there’s always something new flourishing to surprise us. The indoor softens the harsh surfaces of our kitchen improving the room’s sound quality and the outdoor has been particularly popular with bees.



Lighting was an important part of the design of the living walls into the space, to enhance the beautiful textures and 3D effects of the different plants in the evenings and allow the homeowners and guests to enjoy the living walls at all times of the day.
