Hanging Plant Balcony Works Like a Drawbridge

Hanging Plant Balcony Works Like a Drawbridge

We've covered a lot of ways apartment dwellers can bring some greenery into their homes, many of them remarkably clever. Here's one more that fits that description: "Volet Végétal," French for "plant shutter," is a folding balcony for a garden, built right into the window. © Barreau & Charbonnet Volet végétal is the work of design firm Barreau & Charbonnet , a submission for the upcoming exterior design expo in Paris, Jardins Jardin . It's a pretty simple design. A wooden frame holds three planters that are set up to rotate, so that when the frame goes from vertical to horizontal, the plants remain upright. A pulley system raises and lowers the setup. It's a lovely way to get your plants plenty of sunlight, and make sure your neighbors and people in the street below know just how great a gardener you are.
