Called Garden By Be Area, the project aims to bring the outdoors in by separating booth-like spaces with suspended vines.

A ceiling of foliage covers the hair-washing area, which features parquet flooring and wooden cabinets.

Here's some more information from Dessence:

--

"Garden" is born in the woods and the forest by add hand of human. And, it was thought that the space where the human coexisted with nature there was born.

It is connected with nature through "tool=artificial material" when we are connected with nature in the garden in our time.
