The clients in this luxurious townhouse wanted a very private garden with an open space with different outdoor zones. Their children are keen soccer players, so a large grassed area was important, as well as having a space to entertain friends and family.
The townhouse is a large corner block, located opposite an old age home, so privacy and a feeling of being away from the city, was paramount. We incorporated a long built-in planter box of bamboo to create privacy, with additional tropical style planting of Philodendron Rojo Congo and Agave attenuate. Travertine pavers and timber flooring were used as a division for the dining and lounge areas and helped to create a warm, cosy space for the family to enjoy.Photography courtesy of Alex Nikulin.
