Flower Market

A real treasure trove of all things green. Tucked away near Place Louis Lepine, a flower market creates this urban oasis. Lush colourful plants decorate fairly simple structures, and garden accessorises aplenty, covering every available surface. The result is a transformation of something ordinary into extraordinary.

The sensory overload for the eyes is a great pleasure, and for the gardener enthusiast it’s akin to ‘a kid in a sweet shop’ feel.

A metro stop and water points are located within this space, which perhaps attracts people who ordinarily might walk by this urban beauty. It creates an important mixed-use element to the design, or ‘non design’ that makes this landscape successful. It services users who want to be at the flower market, but also offers a greater pull with the ‘non users’ who will indirectly benefit from this green wonder. Flower Market Flower Market
