Providing continuous greenery, working on multi directional curvature, connecting irrigation & drains, human movement from below the green wall were the challenges for this project.

Only 2 plant species are used as the intent was keeping it uniformly green throughout the year. Ficus blackii is used in exposed areas & Pepromia obtusifolia is used for covered area below the staircase.
