We love anything that has an inclination to nature! No wonder many homeowners look for a way to add plants in their house.

Did you know that there are actually more than one ways to do that?

Yes! There are indeed so many ways to add plants inside your home. This includes bringing in plants in pots while others allocated a certain area in their home which they call an indoor garden.

In this image you can see how the house looks like entirely including the pool and the landscape. I totally love the landscaping of this modern home. It doesn’t look too much but it is really beautiful!

This project is from Mayes Office which is actually a renovation and extension at the same time. The main objective was to create a new experience and aesthetic for the existing home without changing the structural integrity of the building. The interior were opened visually and physically to the exterior landscaping areas. To complete the overall composition of the house, a detached pool with hardscape features was added. This home looks really nice even if it is only a one-storey house. This shows us that you don’t need to build a towering house in order to make it look grand and beautiful. It really is just a matter of design!
