What a great use of space, turning a drab and utilitarian area into a useable oasis. Front gardens are so often neglected but this respects the practical requirements of urban living while creating a precious and beautiful outside area. I think the planting and Corten panelling are inspired.

Indeed francetetreualt, I'd not have thought of that. So often I see outside planters but they receive no rain cos they're under the eaves/a verandah etc. But this is a stunning design within such a limited space. And yes, those metal panels really add another dimension to it. A big thumbs up from me...
