The Hot Tin Roof Garden

Container Gardens

Inspired by a life lived by the beach, but designed for an urban area, the garden’s defining features are the large circular corrugated steel containers that dominate the space. The planting here is determined by the shady nature of the imagined space, and the choice of plants produce a cool atmopshere. In contrast, the hard landscaping is inspired by a coastal theme and feels warm, with colours inspired by sand and sea.

Curves are a common theme in the design, from the undulating corrugated steel planters, to the funky abstract print in the tiles.
