Dream Window

Danbury, CT

This design was inspired by the concept of topophilia – a strong sense of place that becomes intertwined with cultural identity.  The client wanted to celebrate her global travels through a series of eleven color and cultural-themed gardens, from the white herb garden of Provence to the Japanese forest grasses in the Asian gold garden. Plants were chosen for their functionality and significance in the composition to represent cultural icons and elements of the natural world. To accentuate the lakeside views, GJL strategically placed a gazebo and created “garden room” seating areas.
