The Porta Hedge

Driving through our neighborhood last week, we noticed the Porta Hedge parked in front of a row of stores. Since we live in LA, we were positive it was in our neck of the woods for filming purposes...

In order to learn more, we jumped online to find out what the Porta Hedge was all about. Apparently, it was in Echo Park for its 2009 Summer Tour. Covered with thousands of recycled Christmas Trees and dotted with fake Blue Jays and Cardinals, at a glance it appears realistic. Surprisingly, the interior of the Porta Hedge's is a great model for small space living.

A combination of chalkboards, organic wood accents and custom cabinets for maximum efficiency, the Porta Hedge's decor is minimal and classic. The interior also houses a remote observation system which allows you to take an inconspicuous peek outside. Justin Shull, artist and creator of the Porta Hedge describes it as a "self-sustainable hedge" complete with solar panels to run the day-to-day operations. And while the hedge on wheels blurs the line between indoors and out, it's small space decor and eco-friendly design is definitely worth noticing.
