Inovo/Ecosmart Garden - Living Outside the Ordinary
Caroline Wesseling was commissioned, by Inovo and Ecosmart Real Fires, to design the ultimate urban courtyard garden paradise, in the form of an outdoor bathroom for The Auckland Flower Show 2008.
This year’s theme is Urban Paradise. The outdoor bathroom redefines the traditional bathroom transforming it into an enclosed garden paradise evoking a sense of sanctuary, luxury and serenity.Outdoor Bathroom Auckland Flower Show
The garden has been cleverly designed as a permeable ‘green’ space, with emphasis on a sense of wellbeing and seclusion; using lush relaxing planting and warm colours. Fire and water are an integral part of the overall relaxed atmosphere. This courtyard garden is serenity in stone, fire and water, a space to come home to, freshen up, relax and unwind.
In creating this urban paradise Caroline endeavors to create a lush green environment as a sanctuary from our busy lives.
After a hard days work, when there is little time to left in our day, to come home to luxurious bathing before bed is to live truly, ‘Outside the Ordinary’.
Featured bath, vanity and vessels are all hand crafted from stone composite material. The sleek minimalist designs - suitable for contemporary or traditional designs inside or out. In the garden they provide a sophisticated yet earthy feel. For that luxury resort feel at home or at the bach you too can have an outdoor bathroom at home by contacting Caroline Wesseling Landscapes.
The Ecosmart Fire Tower, adds ambience and drama heightening the senses with their lively dancing flames. These fires are portable, simple, clean burning and environmentally friendly. Well suited to this enclosed outdoor bathroom they are utterly versatile, suitable also for indoor use.
The garden courtyard is an extension of the house providing openness to the outdoors, but also the intimacy required for one of the most personal spaces in our homes, the bathroom.
Caroline’s use of lush planting, open flames and intimate lighting deftly engulf the user, providing the warmth and coziness required to relax and enjoy this unique outdoor garden experience.Warm cosy landscape
Small outdoor spaces can often be difficult to pave without creating drainage problems for the garden. Caroline uses industrial grating instead of non-permeable traditional paving, providing a low maintenance, permeable, free draining surface for the garden. Excess water can flow directly back into the garden at the same time adding a bit of urban, modern, flare and contrasting well with the lush planting.
If you love gardens and you love luxury you’ll love this urban oasis.
Combined with Caroline’s exquisite planting design and wonderful ambience created by the stunning Ecosmart Towers and luxury Inovo bathroomware, this urban outdoor bathing garden has won Gold for lighting, Silver for Construction, Bronze for Design and overall Best in Show for its intimate lighting.
