    At Changi airport the green wall seen as you come into the terminal building is in front of a clear glass wall, which amazingly has the gentleman’s toilet behind it, from there (the gents) you can see the gubbins that makes it work.

Block out pollutionThere were a few green ideas in Kate Gould’s 2018 New West End Garden, including a bench with vents below to circulate air around the space. But a simple idea that stood out was her choice of ferns as a plant to grow up the walls.They were picked for this vertical area because of their ability to soak up traffic noise and absorb pollution. This is something well worth considering in an urban plot, and ferns have the bonus of being easy to grow while adding stunning feathery foliage to your scheme. Visit more of this peaceful haven.

In the central courtyard, a black-and-white checkered floor gives another nod to classic Georgian design. This flooring has a distinctively 21st century twist, though, as it’s constructed from Pavegen panels, which generate kinetic energy when they’re walked on. This energy, in turn, powers the garden lighting, an outdoor ceiling fan and a simple water feature.
