Christa's Garden in Kassel - Vellmar, DE

An inspirational garden next to the studio of a graphic designer and photographer

The house is built on a steep slope. Linear hedge rows integrate the topography which translates into a labyrinth structure with mysterious pathways and secrete seating spaces.

The view from the artist’s two-storey studio reveals a small garden which depicts a living sculpture organized by intertwined hedges of various species and heights. Decorative ferns, flowering shrubs, perennials and bulbs emphasize the visual impact during the blooming season.

Design and realization: 1994 – 1995
Architect: Doris Hegger, HHS Planer + Architekten
Area: 950 m²
