Close your eyes and dream of the most wonderful natural environment you can imagine. Now open them and look upon that environment, right there in front of you, in your own home or office. It is now possible for anyone to have a spectacular, custom indoor ecosystem of the sort previously only seen in museums, zoos, public aquaria, botanic gardens and upscale hotels.
The modern vivarium is the culmination of intensive development in the field of interior enclosed ecosystems. Vivaria may simulate any natural environment – tropical rainforest, desert, temperate woodland, montane (mountains), paludal (marsh or wetland) and freshwater or marine aquatic (aquaria). Other related interior environments include indoor waterfalls & water walls, indoor planters & planted walls, planted atria, indoor ponds, indoor rock gardens and ultimate dog & cat habitats.
These environments are natural, lovely, healthy and bring a sense of peacefulness and joy into any man-made space. They are a festival for the senses – visually, with color, texture and movement; aurally, with running water and the sounds of singing frogs and birds; aromatically, with the fresh small of the woods or fragrant flowers. They may include any combination of natural elements. Stone, wood, water and other natural elements. Living plants are usually central: Flowers – including orchids, bromeliads, tillandsias, begonias, violets & other gesneriads, anthuriums & other aroids; Foliage plants – philodendrons, ferns, etc.; Groundcovers – mosses, etc.; and Trees – large, magnificent, bonsai-styled specimens, some with fantastic flowers. Some vivaria contain animals: Reptiles – geckos, chameleons, anoles & other lizards, certain lovely snakes, etc.; Amphibians – amazing jewel-colored dart frogs, treefrogs, toads, etc.; Birds – songbirds, finches, parrots, etc.; And others – certain mammals, invertebrates such as butterflies, mantids, etc.
These environments are fully-functional ecosystems, completely self-contained and automatically controlled to maintain consistent beauty and healthy conditions. They are custom-designed to fit perfectly into your space and merge gracefully with your décor. They can be incorporated into new construction or remodels, or built into an existing space. They may be perfect for awkward, unused spaces or for repurposing old atria, aquaria, sunrooms, etc. that are no longer working for you. We can work with interior designers, architects, builders and contractors to incorporate one of these environments into any project. We offer complete maintenance services as well. These environments will bring new life and vigor to your space.
So enter, look, read and consider. If you think one of our environments might be right for you, give us a call or send an email to arrange for a free consultation. We look forward to helping you fulfill your dreams.
