Irma Herbst of Onrus decided to have a beautiful window she was gifted built into her boundary wall as a striking feature. Framed by lush ivy, the semicircle window allows the sun’s rays to shine through and brighten up what could potentially have been a dark corner.
Tree wall sculptures beneath the window complete the picture; the ivy around them is pruned regularly so as not to crowd them out. Because the window is positioned high on the wall and has opaque glass, Irma and her neighbours’ privacy isn’t compromised.
