A sliding screen offers glimpses to the living room beneath this plant-filled wall, which architecture firm Nauturehumaine has added to a 1940s house in Montreal. The local studio renovated the mid-century property in the Canadian city’s residential Outremont borough for a couple and their two children. At the request of the wife, who works in the environmental and health field and has a keen interest in wellbeing, a green wall was created as the centrepiece of the home. Measuring 2.8 by five metres, the planted screen divides a pair of split-level living areas. To accommodate the feature, the firm extended the upper lounge – which is raised above a garage beneath –into the attic, forming a double-height space for the foliage to grow up. Encased in a white frame, the greenery is elevated above the ground floor to provide a gap for a window beneath, which offers views between the two living areas. A white steel screen perforated with a “wavy motif” slides in front of the opening to provide privacy when necessary. “We decided to create a visual link between the two spaces by introducing an opening animated by a steel laser-cut sliding panel that could bring intimacy to the living room when needed,” Nauturehumaine architect Stéphane Rasselet told Dezeen.

    What type of roses are they that you had to order them

    You will some trellis or wire arrangement. We have a couple climbers on the front of the house. Supported on painted wooden trellis. I have mixed them with Clematis. I stopped them growing beyond the first floor as it really becomes a pain to prune and dead head. It took about six years on a south facing wall for the roses to get to that height. But I get a great show of flowers in spring and summer. ATB 🙂
