With a passionate emphasis on outdoor living, the client’s brief for this new build was to design a home that was based around a series of landscaped spaces. Each of these spaces was to have a gently distinctive design style while at the same time complimenting the aesthetics of the build.
Working in small breakout areas, Site Design fashioned several different landscape zones. A tight planting schedule and a limited pallet of natural stone ensured that each space, while possessing its own personality, came together to create a fluid finished result.
Formal structural gardens using Killcare stone walls and bluestone steps tie in with a Killcare feature wall and ornamental pond located in another space of the home. Bluestone pavers are used as steps and borders in most spaces while porphyry cobblestones were employed to add a defining, cooler color palette and contrasting surface texture.
Working with natural stone, both in the building itself and garden spaces, has created an cohesive link between the building and its surrounding environment. This has resulted in a grounded home with stunning and intriguing garden outlooks from every room and an overall design that is fluid and inviting.
