Japanese Garden Amsterdam
3D design sketches of a Japanese garden in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In fact, this is a design to combine two adjacent gardens into a whole. The client was charmed by the Japanese garden and also had a lot of inspiration in California, USA. The starting point in this design are the warm tones (Californie) the colors of old weathered wood and the application of many grasses. The goal was not a 100% Japanese garden but rather a combination of a warm sunny stylized garden with authentic Japanese elements such as stepping stones, an ornament, a rockformation and Japanese planting.

The old balcony in the left apartment has been replaced by a terrace of antique European oak parts. This terrace descends into the garden of the right apartment through a number of smaller platforms that eventually lead to the terrace below. The walls at the upper terrace are plastered in a warm off-white color. For the large vertical windows of both apartments, wooden grating have been placed which forms the connection between the modern glass fa├žade and the wood of the terraces. A rock formation was created in front of the upper, floating terrace in a 'san-zon-seki' arrangement. Two of the rocks are integrated into the terrace parts. The rocks are surrounded by gently swaying grasses that can be lit from under the upper terrace.

In the garden itself is a beautiful antique Japanese Nurasagi lantern placed which is accessible via a stepping stone path from the lower terrace. The gravel symbolizes the water where the rocks represent the steep cliffs. By applying the natural materials such as the old European oak and the rocks in combination with the warm stucco walls and the difference in level an exciting, at the same time soothing environment has been created.
