Check out this innovative window garden design. Winner of the Red Dot award.
Herbow is a window planter ‘tray’ that enables people to grow small crops outside their windows while shielding their interior space from the rain. It enlarges the city’s planting area, enhances the view from buildings, and generates renewal.
Herbow is a window shelter concept designed with urban farming and city greening in mind. With it, people can grow herbs and small vegetables in pots beside their windows as if they were planting them in a garden. By swinging Herbow upwards, it becomes a window shelter that blocks the harsh sunlight and the rain. At the same time, the plants are watered and grow naturally.
An eave has been designed to extend over the shelter to stop water falling through the gap between Herbow and the window frame. Holes on two sides of Herbow allow for drainage of excess water. People can conveniently bring the pots inside for decoration or consumption. The city can be a greener landscape with fresher air when everyone grows their own vegetables on Herbow.
