Called ‘Living Art’ the multifunction garden features a glass bridge, coloured glass pergola and moving mirror image from Metro Glasstech, an outdoor TV from H2OTV, and new plant releases from Gardening Solutionz.

LuuTomes, who has enjoyed success at local gardening shows, says he wanted to create a multifunctional garden and found inspiration in the works of famous Dutch painter Pieter Mondrian. “The design is based on simple harmonies, straight lines, right angles and primary colours,” says Bayley LuuTomes.

LuuTomes faced stiff competition from 9 other entrants. A group of CPIT Bachelor of Architectural Studies students has also won a gold medal in the Ellerslie Show’s Emerging Designer – Student of the Year competition.

Sarah Ridgen, Sam Patterson, JP McGlion and Blake McCutcheon said the inspiration for their rooftop garden called ‘Framed’ came from the rebuild of Christchurch’s inner city, working with architectural principles they wanted to create an innovative urban space.
