The black wooden trellis changes the former heterogeneous patchwork of different parts of the building into a homogeneous shape.
It provides shadow and screens from view.
A wild vine is overgrowing the trellis and completes the impression of an arbour in some spaces.
The changing colour of the wild vine will turn the colour of the Black Treefrog into green and red depending on the seasons.
