Paulina Kochanowicz created a stunning architectural render called 'Vertical Garden'. She talks about it in great detail on

First of all, a big thanks to Ronen Bekerman for inviting me to write and share with you this article about the making-of my Vertical Garden project. After many commissioned projects for clients, I decided it was time to make a personal project. A project in which I can explore and learn new tricks. So I was happy to find some time to make something without all that rush associated with commercial projects.

It was meant to be simple, quick and fun. So this project was made to test an idea of vertical gardens in interior and to give The Grass Essentials a try in an unusual way. These pictures are a part of a larger project but for now it’s a set of these four renders. with additional renders made for this making-of.

  1. Nice done.

    The design has minimalistic, primitive concept.
    I slightly doubt a bit the practical side, its a great habitat for insects.
    And a bad stair for kids, as young children could put themselves trough the ropes.
    And in reality plants would grow upwards, but we get the hanging gardens concept.

    Personally i think i'd not use the ropes, but prefer to keep similar materials as in furniture (ea furniture also based on these ropes / colours or al a fishnet textile , or do it all in steal. Doing all in polished concrete+steel + nature would a nice contrast. Now there is a bit of a split of 3 styles, could be more minimalistic i think.

    From a blender perspective, i'm curious how did you make ropes ?
