Wellington designer wins Student of the Year - Emerging Design competition


Wellington young designer Bayley LuuTomes has captured glory at the Ellerslie International Flower Show with a rooftop garden inspired by Mondrian.


He has been named Student of the Year in the 2013 Emerging Designs competition, in which nine entrants designed and built a rooftop garden ideal for hosting and entertaining guests.

For Bayley LuuTomes, Ellerslie has been the chance to demonstrate all the skills that he has learned since giving up his career in the advertising industry to pursue his passion for landscape design.

Judges said Bayley’s work stood out because of both its “great use of space and materials and its faultless construction”.

“My gardening style has been grafted with my eye for design,” says Bayley, who set up his own company, BLT Designs, in October last year.

Called ‘Living Art’ the multifunction garden features a glass bridge, coloured glass pergola and moving mirror image from Metro Glasstech, an outdoor TV from H2OTV, and new plant releases from Gardening Solutionz.

Designed so that people can entertain in many different ways, the garden easily transforms into several different layouts.

Bayley LuuTomes, who has enjoyed success at local gardening shows, says he wanted to create a multifunctional garden and found inspiration in the works of famous Dutch painter Pieter Mondrian.

“The design is based on simple harmonies, straight lines, right angles and primary colours,” says Bayley LuuTomes.

The Emerging Designs – Student of the Year competition was open to all students of landscape, design and horticulture and provides an opportunity for them to demonstrate their design flare.

In recent years the competition has been a career launch pad for many young designers.
A group of CPIT Bachelor of Architectural Studies students has also won gold in the Ellerslie International Flower Show’s Emerging Designer – Student of the Year competition.

Sarah Ridgen, Sam Patterson, JP McGlion and Blake McCutcheon said the inspiration for their rooftop garden called ‘Framed’ came from the rebuild of Christchurch’s inner city, working with architectural principles they wanted to create an innovative urban space.
