HOTEL GARDEN DESIGN – SYDNEY

LOCATION – ADINA APARTMENT HOTEL CHIPPENDALE


THE BRIEF – The Adina Apartments (Toga Group) owns a large serviced hotel in Chippendale in Sydney’s inner city, featuring an outdated hotel garden. They wanted to bring it completely up to date with modern usable spaces for their guests to enjoy. 

They liked a contemporary Palm Springs look with palms, modern cacti and border hedging contrasted with new modern white pots.

THE CLIENTS  – Adina Hotel (Toga Group) have recently upgraded their Chippendale hotel internally and wanted the landscaping to complete the new look to create a hotel garden Sydney with a modern feel.

THE PROJECT – We have combined many elements on this project from our global design philosophy – blending modern Australian, tropical with a splash of American Palm Springs styles.

New colourful tiling and outdoor cushions have added a glam feel to the pool area. New plantings such as tropical palms, cacti, bromeliads, Xanadu and new pebbles, rocks and modern white pots have all been introduced as a modern fusion of our landscape design.

They love their outdoor spaces but the large size of the garden was lacking a livable space. 

Our new courtyard garden design – We completely cleaned up the existing structures of the courtyard including trimming back the trees – allowing light to return to the space. We also cleaned the existing pavers and installed a beautiful timber bridge enhancing the walkway areas. We added new white pots which modernised the space and created a lighter feel.

GARDEN PRIVACY SCREENING – SYDNEY

LOCATION – ROSE BAY
THE BRIEF – Create Garden Privacy Screening

Create privacy from the neighbouring apartment block using garden privacy screening. Create a sense of driveway grandeur as the entrance to the house.

Young professional family with 2 children in high school.

A driveway is the first introduction to your home and, arguably, the last impression left. For our clients of this beautiful Rose Bay villa-style home, we wanted to create an elegant, sense of grandeur in the lead up to their home’s entrance. We also introduced some practical elements of garden privacy screening using established plants that will provide more privacy over time.

As the entrance to their battle-axe property, the clients were keen for us to enhance their driveway, with low maintenance plants, and create privacy from the neighbouring apartment building. We incorporated a Mediterranean aesthetic, with a more formal planting scheme, using repetition of minimal plants, including Magnolia ‘Little Gem’, Liriope Muscari and a clipped Japanese Buxus hedge. With the addition of scented Lavender, Rosemary and Jasmine at the front, the sensory garden was complete.

Modern Coastal Garden – Dover Heights

MODERN COASTAL GARDEN DESIGN – SYDNEY

LOCATION – DOVER HEIGHTS

THE CLIENTS – A Dover Heights family who want to have enough room share their new coastal garden space with family and friends. Living in a highly exposed coastal position on the cliffs of Dover Heights which receives fierce winds. Their garden backs onto the cliff park which is exposed to strong coastal winds, and salt water.

THE BRIEF – Our brief was to design a modern coastal garden with planting for their back and side gardens that would be particularly hardy. They also wanted a low maintenance garden that could also accommodate their many family and friends.

We incorporated a defined structure to help create a new modern coastal garden feel. We included a zig zag style retaining wall, inspired by renowned Modernist Landscape Architect Thomas Church, which can double as extra seating.

We incorporated Millboard (artificial timber) decking along the front and top of the wall, to extend the decking into the garden area and incorporated large Cor-ten steel planters to add extra layering and dramatic effect.

PLANTS – A range of succulents and local, hardy plants, with primarily blue/grey foliage, which complements their vibrant outdoor dining table. 

Townhouse Garden – Randwick

TOWNHOUSE GARDEN SYDNEY

LOCATION – NORTH RANDWICK

THE BRIEF – Private townhouse garden with zoned living areas.

The clients wanted a very private open space with different outdoor zones, where their children could play soccer and they could entertain friends and family.

The townhouse is on a large corner block in Randwick –  located opposite an old age home. The townhouse garden needed privacy and a feeling of being away from the city to make the family feel a sense of privacy and comfort to relax outdoors.

Deb did the most incredible job designing our stunning garden. She was extremely knowledgeable about plants, listened well to what we wanted & was able to create a garden with privacy that was lush and tranquil. Through Deb’s creativity she was able to design a magical space that was exactly what we were wanting. The garden was a brilliant selling feature when we recently sold our home. Deb and Nina were a pleasure to work with.

APARTMENT BLOCK GARDEN SYDNEY

LOCATION – RUSCHCUTTERS BAY

The body corporate of this beautiful apartment complex in Rushcutters Bay wanted a refurbishment of their apartment block garden.  The communal garden areas needed to be brightened up in the darker areas of the apartment garden to encourage the residents to enjoy looking over their balconies into an elegant and vibrant space. 

It had to be attractive from all sides of the building, yet hardy and low maintenance. So we included some modern new large scale pots and some modern tropical plants including Elephants Ears. We finished the planting off with some corten steel edging and new light pebbles underneath.

You did a wonderful job with the garden refurbished. It looks just gorgeous and everyone is so happy with the result

COASTAL FRONT GARDEN DESIGN – SYDNEY

LOCATION – VAUCLUSE

Our clients wanted us to design the coastal front garden, back and side garden areas for their new architect designed home in Vaucluse. The design needed to soften the strong rectilinear lines of the new home’s contemporary architecture and complement the white and grey colour scheme. In the back garden, the focus was to create privacy and maximise space for the kids to play.

In the front garden, planting needed to soften the driveway and large format steps at the entranceway. Dracaena draco (Dragon Tree) was selected as the feature tree, along with a combination of Australian natives and succulents, with a mixture of green, grey and glaucous coloured foliage. Our coastal Plant selection needed to be hardy, low maintenance and dog friendly.
