Our clients are real art lovers. For this project, the brief was to curate from the ground up a garden that was integrated with the architecture, interiors, and art collection as one living place. Everywhere you look as you move through the residence you are aware that you’re within a carefully crafted artistic experience.
Our focus was to use glauca (blue-grey) greens and the lacey canopy of the olives to set the tone for the central courtyard, the most-viewed outdoor space on the property. In the central courtyard, we made the ground gravel which allowed us to blur the edges between the planting and the usable surface. Gravel gardens are becoming more popular in Australia because of their low water requirement and the ability they provide to create void spaces in the garden without the ubiquitous lawn.
