TSEH Architects Transform a Dull Office into a Glorious Green Haven Filled With Plants When an old technology office needed a makeover from its minimalist soviet modernism decor, they decided to go big -- and green! The wonder workers at TSEH Architectural Group in Kyiv, Ukraine have recently revitalized a hard, cold industrial office space into a luscious indoor garden. With green walls, trees, even grassy knolls to sit upon, employees can stop and smell the flowers without even leaving the building. Upon entering the technology office space, guests are greeted with two vertical green columns at the reception area. While greenery certainly brightens up a room, it is nothing without the right environment. TSEH Architect‘s eco-takeover incorporates a ton of green and grassy features, but it also preserves most of the original outlines of the industrial loft. + TSEH Architectural Group

Herb2 from FABRIKAAT is an Innovative Indoor Vertical Garden Designed for urban homes that are short on gardening space, the Herb² is a transformable partition wall that can can bring succulents to any room in a modern and stylish way. Exhibited at the FABRIKAAT exhibition during this year’s Milan Design Week, this beautiful piece was designed by Mariann Hildal and Milda Liubinskaite as a part of the Master of Interior Architecture and Retail Design program at Rotterdam’s Piet Zwart Institute. The thing that differentiates the Herb2 from other green partition walls is its interesting folding pattern that also opens up. A manual pull-up mechanism creates separate environments, both visually and functionally. When Herb² is closed, it serves as a herb terrarium with a small eco-climate that boasts temperature control and a LED lighting system. Built with an interesting mix of materials, Herb² is made with a pine wood base, and a plexiglas cover – both of which are partially recyclable. + Herb²
