Plant containers for building entrance ! The co-ownership of this residence wanted to cover the open spaces on both sides of the building entrance. Indeed, the latter saw itself too regularly subject to degradation or dirt. Image’In provided them here with their custom-made plant containers in various shapes and sizes. This makes it possible to adorn the entire floor space with an original and dynamic set. Access to the corners of the building is no longer possible. At the same time, the space is now warmer.

The choice of finishes is sober and design with these two shades of gray. It is a consensual decision that permit to stay in harmony with the building and the stone floor. And for a use requiring a minimum of maintenance, the choice of plants requiring only a little watering was quite natural.
