The Infinity Forest was a green oasis amongst the hard, vertical walls of Penfold’s and Hosking Place. Normally used as a shortcut or smoking area, visitors to this forgotten alley found it transformed by a burst of concentrated nature.
In the space carefully located between fire escapes, vehicle ramps and back door entrances, the public came across tough timber walls that concealed a forest within. Fifteen trees up to 4 metres tall were placed within a mirrored structure that was self-watering.
Entering this intimate urban living room, you discovered yourself captured in an infinite view of a silver birch forest, where you could pause and reflect on the city above.
