Ambitious 10 Year Gardening Project : John Brooker’s Green Dragon Hedge

Investing a few hours each day to turn his ordinary hedge into a massive sculpture of a dragon, John Brooker made his Frizzleton Farm property a magical land. We were pleasantly surprised by this man's ability and ambition to shape a 100 feet long, 20 feet high dragon out of his living fence. Spending a decade of his life shaping each detail, 75 year-old gardener John Brooker transformed his hedge in Norfolk into an ambitious work of art photographed by Damien McFadden.

Seen on This Is Colossal, the massive green dragon hedge faces the street while its ambitiously manicured body serpents along the property.  From the nostrils above the open mouth, past the large wings and down to the six sets of legs, the dragon's details were carefully sculpted into virality. It took 10 years because the perfectionist gardener was adding details after details as the hedge started to take a dragon's shape. We can all agree that his ambition and perseverance finally pays off.

Charming Modern Home Extension Re-Shaping Socializing Opportunities

Extending a home to fit current needs is not to be taken easily. A modern home extension requires planning for future use and using what already exists to support that. An exemplary proof is Casa ATT by Dionne Arquitectos, a home in Puebla, Mexico, that was re-designed by the architects as a fuller, more nurturing collection of spaces. In their successful effort of renewing the outline of the house, architects integrated the new structure into the familiar floor plan by “generating clear transitional environments discovering visual axes and circulation leading to the new spaces.”

Plenty of socializing areas bring the family together: the new open social space, terrace and guest bedroom complete the necessary space and helps better organize the interiors. In addition, the terrace overlooking the garden connects the original volume with the new additions. In these photos captured by Patrick López Jaimes, the layout looks beautifully put together. From the front, the house looks private and once you step inside, details flood your design-hungry mind. According to the architects, “ATT House is a house in which a clear spatial harmony lives through environments that invite habitation.”

What do you think about this modern home extension? Can this home inspire you to extend your own piece of heaven? mo
