What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Stairwell and Light Well Garden in SydneyIn another Sydney home, the architects at CplusC Architectural Workshop used multiple indoor-outdoor spaces as opportunities to bring more green into the home. Here, we see a clever use of an often forgotten space, the shadowy area beneath stairs: It has been transformed into a bright mini garden with cast iron plant (Aspidistra elatior).Planting tip: Cast iron plant can be a real problem solver in spots that receive low light or are challenging to access. The tough plants need little water and look good year-round.
This view toward the staircase shows how its sculptural lines enhance the interior of the house. The owners say the garden under the stairs brings the outside in and adds a dramatic green element to the stunning form of the stairs.Planted around the base of the staircase is Aspidistra elatior, commonly called cast-iron plant for its ability to cope with dust, low light and minimal water. It can also be planted outside in warm, shaded locations.
