A plant visor with metallic woven mesh [524]

The most interesting aspect of this protection is its simplicity. A very simple braided reinforcement mesh is placed on steel arches forming a curved visor on the façade of the establishment. The mesh will be covered by vegetation rooted in the deck. Where the mesh is still not covered its slight rusty colour gives a warm and close aspect.
