We needed a way of getting the plant in the air…Having researched various ideas we chose a Ballista catapult.

We had to find a way of making Paulo’s cottage look homely without overcrowding the tiny space. A lamp and an armchair, upholstered in Paulo’s favorite fabric.

Paulo was born in rural Italy in around 1960. He invented, amongst other things, an automatic boot scraper and the portable oxygen-making backpack. He took pride in his house and garden, growing his own vine-ripened tomatoes and olives. Widowed in 2020, Paulo planted a sunflower in memory of his wife. As more and more developers built around his house he knew he would need to take some drastic measures to ensure its survival.
