10′ x 16′ x 14′

Three walls of windows covered with lace curtains hung from CPVC pipes overlooking an herb garden.   7 curtains sewn together with pockets in which 7 different culinary herbs were planted, and watered by a drip irrigation system.  The water dripped down the curtains to rain gutters that recycled the water back to a stainless steel reservoir.  Two existing corner cabinets were stuffed with dried culinary herbs.  The scent of culinary herbs was prevalent with sound of running water.
