Not Your Typical Landscape Fence

When Heri met Salli, they created a very interesting architectural duo. Take for instance the Landscape Fence project.  Don’t be fooled by the nonchalant title. Vienna-based architects, Heri & Salli, find harmony with form and function.

I’d like to imagine the scenario went a little like this:

Client: Hi, we’d like you to design a fence. Yes, you know, provide privacy for the backyard. Oh, it would be splendid if it had some appeal. A unique picket white fence type.

Heri & Salli: Sure, I think we can handle that.

 … and then BAM!

Turns out they’re idea of a landscape fence is this massive steel structure of beauty. It redefined the existing garden and framed the view of the lake, while still functions as a tradition fence by providing privacy.

“With this in mind it doesn’t demarcate the space, but creates it and renders it experienceable , the function as a demarcation slides into the background and is only a byproduct.”

“I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and the thing is, I love you.” Yes, Landscape Fence, I think you are a beast of beauty. Pushing the boundaries of creativity, you are truly a work of art.
