House & Garden Unit
To think about a house and a garden as one unit, as a whole.
The house is part of the garden and garden part of the house. They are both parts of the same identity, depending and relying on each other.
The H&G (House and Garden) unit is like a symbiotic union and mutualism is the basic concept of this particular association.
The H&G unit is provided with structure where everything is combined and integrated in the whole, as part of it, not rejected or covered. For this reason several systems are sustaining the garden, holding it and shaping it.
