Client Background

Air New Zealand, winner of the Airline of the year award for 3 consecutive years, upgraded their flagship Air New Zealand Koru Lounge at Auckland International Airport. The rapidly expanding and successful Airline designed a sleek and modern lounge incorporating stylish meeting rooms, VIP lounges, and luxury dining areas. Discreet and attentive service allows customers to work, relax, or dine in modern and luxury surroundings.


Scope of Works

The Living Plant Wall, installed by Oasis Landscapes - New Zealand, also uses the ANS Global Plant module design, of which SMI National are the exclusive distributors in Australia.
Oasis Landscapes (New Zealand) created 7 detailed planting designs, each creating a unique atmosphere, with particular focus on structural effect, along with detailed consideration of the natural ambience. Once the final design was created and refined, Oasis grew the wall in a dedicated nursery at ANS Global, United Kingdom. Installation was carried out and resulted in an instant impact, creating a natural expansive atmosphere, aligning with an impression of possibility the designers sought to form. As the living wall by Oasis was such a key part of the project design, the architect and designers carefully situated the living wall so it could be seen from almost anywhere in the luxurious complex.
