Some days, the view from the office window inspires thoughts of pastoral escape. For the designers of Poland's Zalewski Architecture Group the view inspired something a bit different—a floating, grass-covered "Walk-On" balcony.
The pathway is suspended in the air outside the designers' third-floor office, latched onto the walls of the building and held up by cables. Zalewski wanted to find a way to "change a sad courtyard," and decided to keep the path narrow and winding to avoid blocking their neighbors from the sun.
At a mere 80 centimeters wide, the sheet (covered in moss) "mirrors the surroundings and blurs the edges of the path" for a "relaxing walk." The bottom is made of polished metal and looks even narrower from below, giving it a sort-of L.A. freeways effect, and adding some "whimsical fun to the courtyard."
