Forest Furnitures


Forest Furnitures
Landscape design at Da Ming Rd crossing Nanxun Rd, Shanghai

The idea for this small landscape is to preserve the small existing forest next to the main road and add all necessary park equipment so to serve better the future high-rise office building that will rise in the same block.
The park furnitures will be divided in three height levels, from the shelter to the tables and the benches.
The idea is to create very thin rounded mirrored aluminum surfaces so to be almost invisible in elevation and completely mimetic because of the environment reflection. All those three levels surfaces will be built on site holed so to make each tree able to pass through. This will divide the view of the trees in two areas: the lower one where you will see the naked trunks reflected and stretched by the roof mirror, and the upper one where there will be all the trees leaves.
This tailor made reflecting surfaces will multiply the beauty of the forest but also serve the visitors who will be able to enjoy outdoor meals or work meetings using the tables comfortably screened from sunny and rainy days by the shelter.
