Green Wall and a Glowing Entryway
Silver LEED certification and native plantings make this a remarkable project.
This outdoor space in Cambridge, Mass., was created by Julie Moir Messervy Design Studio (JMMDS). On the studio website, the designer says …
“JMMDS created a garden of living walls and self-weathering steel around a tall contemporary house that sits on a narrow lot overtopped with giant pine trees. The green wall greets the visitor at the front of the house while a water rill of self-weathering steel recirculates around the side and back.
“An elegantly curved wall of shade-loving native plants softens a six-foot high concrete retaining wall at the entry court that doubles as a turn-around and parking area. Native plants such as ferns, Solomon Seal, and foamflower fill the cells of the verdant vertical wall, offering privacy, textural interest and beauty for this welcoming entryway.”
