Helmut hair salon sits within a row of terraced shops in central Auckland. I was invited to design the garden space at the rear of the building, which is viewed from inside through a large picture window. The space is small and heavily overlooked so privacy is everything. The design is based around climbing plants and a simple framework of steel mesh panels and stainless steel wires overhead. This will, over time, create a terrace completely surrounded by greenery. The climbers include an interesting mix of grape, NZ clematis, passion fruit and jasmine.
