It’s called a Gabon wall. There is plenty of information on the internet about making one. When backfilling, as in this picture, be mindful of the very, very good drainage.
Thanks for the reply. I’m well aware of gabions, I’m a landscape designer. It’s the building in the background I’m interested in. I’d like to know more about. If there are more pictures available, who designed it, where it is. I love the roofline, it’s so different and unusual.
