I wrote about The Garden Edit store back in February but they have since launched The Garden Edit Journal which is definitely worth a look. Here are two gardens they have posted about which are truly inspiring.

This so called ‘Green Box’ is situated in the Raethian Alps, Switzerland. It was created by architects Act Romegialli from a disused garage. The building houses a simple kitchen and entertaining space along with a spot for its owners gardening tools. The vegetation that covers the structure is largely deciduous – honeysuckle, russian vine, hop and golden clematis. While the base is surrounded by evergreens like valerian, cosmos, gem marigolds, and zinnias which provide a year-round variety of flowers.

Completed earlier this year, this library in Mexico City was designed by architects Fernanda Canales and arquitectura 911sc. The original house has been wrapped in concrete and glass to create an entirely new structure. The tree that stood out the front of the old house now sits in the entrance atrium of the new library.
