When space is at a premium, necessity becomes the mother of invention: this hanging urban garden uses the air space outside a window. For urban gardeners and farmers without land, terraces, or balconies, Paris-based design/architecture firm Barreau&Charbonnet reinterprets the hanging garden concept with,Volet Végétal, a drawbridge-like suspended urban garden.
Volet Végétal mounts against a windowsill then, with a pulley system, extends out about five feet, then lowers to a horizontal position and back up again. Integrated planter boxes fit into pivoting frames to prevent plants from falling out as the Volet Végétal is moved from the vertical to horizontal position.The complete system is easily removed from the window and brought inside to become a free standing vegetable garden–just add some grow lights for use indoors.
