Casa Espejo Verde, Huatan's landscaping project, as an iconic and distinctive element of the project, an imposing vertical garden of succulents (Drosanthemum floribundum, Sedum morganianum, Sempervivum) was designed that flows into a pond with fish and turtles, in which creates a microclimate with its own ecosystem.
This vertical garden connects the exterior with the interior of the house, generating an overwhelming biophilic effect.

The concept starts from conceiving an authentic sensory explosion in the environment of each of its gardens, so that as a whole, they give birth to a range of unmatched experiences.

The terrace was conceived as a place open to the senses. In every corner, you can find great little secrets of exotic plants, with whimsical shapes and unusual textures such as the Mexican Dioscorea, Green Echeverias, Delosperma cooperi and Reina's Navel, which in their composition, originate a great sensory surprise.

The environments were designed so that the very texture of the space, the lines, the pictures and the leaks of the architectural disposition of the house and thus live, and generate a perfect conjunction, in which the plants are used as a means of expression of emotions.
