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.
