Offering some green relief in a dense and brightly-neoned cityscape, these mini urban farming cubes add visual relief and interest but also provide a functional habitat supplying an adjacent restaurant.

Simple iron frames enclose full glazing on all sides so passers by or diners can watch from any side. The growing plants within provide shade and configure exterior space for the restaurant-goers as well.

Crafted by ON Design Partners, the plan and materials are relatively simple but a useful prototype for those who would seek to add urban greenery with more than one purpose in mind.
