You can create symlink to Wordpress public directory in Laravel folder. For example, wp:

                 /wp #(symlink to -> /var/www/wordpress/public_html)

And describe Laravel routes in .htaccess. Example of code of /var/www/laravel/public/.htaccess:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    <IfModule mod_negotiation.c>
        Options -MultiViews

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_FINISH} .
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]

    # Laravel

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !.*\.php$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ $1 [E=FINISH:1,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(api/licenseplate)(\?.*|$) [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(api/calendar)(\?.*|$) [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(admin/settings)(\?.*|$) [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(admin/appointments)(\?.*|$) [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(appointment)(\?.*|$) [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(auth/login)(\?.*|$)
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php [E=FINISH:1,L]

    # Wordpress

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/wp
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /wp/$1 [E=FINISH:1,L]


Code of /var/www/wordpress/public_html/.htaccess (just copy of your wordpress .htaccess):

# BEGIN WordPress

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress
