Hybrid spaces to blur the boundary between home and garden

Hybrid spaces to blur the boundary between home and garden

Winter gardens, glazed porches and glass verandas make you enjoy green spaces in the cold winter months

When winter arrives, many people start feeling nostalgia for spring and miss their lush summer gardens, but despite the arrival of cold winter months, it is still possible to enjoy green spaces in a home!

The secret lies in creating hybrid transition spaces between the interior and the exterior spaces of the house: glazed porches, terraces or glass verandas and – for those who have a garden bright canopies where one can read a book or enjoy drinks with family and friends. Of course, this is not a brand-new idea because greenhouses, verandas and winter gardens were first designed in places where people had to face long-lasting harsh winters, but they are becoming more and more common in warmer countries, too: orangeries and glass-fronted lemon-houses are typical Italian constructions.

Sliding glass doors that can be used to create glazed walls for verandas and balconies, glasshouses with a wooden framework to be put at the centre of the garden or used as an extension of the house, outdoor rooms with sliding ceilings and glazed walls that can be opened and closed… these are only a few ideas to enjoy the winter without being upset by bad weather.

What about the furniture for these spaces? Furnishings should be ambivalent, which means that they should fit to both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Furthermore, it is important to choose the right indoor plants! Spaces which are not equipped with a heating system – where the inside temperature is 4-5°C higher than the outside temperature and that can reach 0°C during the winter months – can host camphors, mimosas, jasmines, olive trees, bamboos and the most resistant palms. In the spaces that are connected to the house and where the temperature is never below 10-15°C, it is possible to plant palms, cycads, cactuses, citrus trees, Ficus, Philodendrons or even plants in flower such as orchids, bougainvilleas and altheas.

Plants fit to all kinds of homes and make you enjoy green spaces even in the cold winter months!
