The glass panels create an open, expansive design everywhere, no matter where you’re within the space. The glass panels actually function something like greenhouses. These areas provide space for plants, creating walls of green all around. This is how nature can be integrated into interior design in a way that’s elegant and easy.
Furthermore, natural light fills up the spaces, keeping everything bright. The whole design is made with glass panels and two hundred frames. The frames are placed in a spiral shape and there are plants everywhere to create division and natural beauty throughout.
Additionally, rails were built into the glass doors to allow for hangers, hooks, monitors and shelves. The rest of the interior space is dominated by gorgeous wood. It covers the floor and creates the bar area at the center of the spiral. It’s a perfect setting for neutral, low-profile furnishings and simple, elegant design. All together, it’s a simply stunning example of how interior design can honor nature’s beauty and remain functional and elegant. Simple curtains, blinds or shades can provide privacy when it’s desired, so that any area of the space can be hidden from view.
