Christchurch airport is New Zealand’s tourism gateway. This NZ airport is in the South Island and is located near many iconic tourism highlights, approx. 12km to the northwest of the city centre.
This unique living wall runs alongside the luggage conveyor belt in the arrivals lounge, giving passengers a fantastic arrival into New Zealand! The brief was to install a living wall that bought some of the native species inside, but also depicted some of the country’s most iconic mountain ranges. To construct the whole design from plants wasn’t feasible, so the mountains were printed onto a large canvas (this also means it can be changed as required, to another setting). The living wall sits snuggly underneath the terminal sign, bringing to life the whole scene in a truly superb way! Plants consist mainly of interior tropical type plants, planted to a random design. Consisting of 240 individually planted modules, the living wall is maintained regularly by our New Zealand distributor.
Case Study Location
Feedback gained from both airport staff and customers is that the wall is a great addition to the area.
