Japanese Garden Amsterdam
These are pictures of a 3D design of a Japanese garden in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The design combines two adjacent gardens into one, with both sides representing two different parts of the world. The client was charmed by the traditional Japanese garden but also took a lot of inspiration from California, USA. The starting point of the design was applying warm tones through the colors of old weathered wood, which can remind one of California. Next to this, many tall grasses were applied in the design. The ultimate goal was not to create a traditional Japanese garden, but rather a combination of a warm sunny stylized garden with authentic Japanese elements such as an antique stone lantern, a rock formations, Japanese planting and stepping stones.

The old balcony at the apartment on the left has been replaced by a terrace of antique European oak. 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 façade 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 a beautiful antique Japanese Nurasagi lantern is 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, an exciting yet soothing environment has been created.
