The Garden Design Project – An Overview

The property: This penthouse property boasted a beautiful outside space with urban buildings dotted around the landscape.

The conceptual brief: Our client required a modern, easy-to-maintain space befitting of a penthouse roof terrace that would further enhance the glass roof top opening.

The Garden Design Project – In Detail

Project challenges

The challenges of this project went beyond aesthetics, to also include design that would be suitable for a penthouse in terms of weights and construction. A further challenge was transporting materials to site.

Project Approach and Contemporary Garden Design Solution

This project demanded the use of an external hoist lift, and drawings and projected weights that were approved by a structural engineer prior to commencing.

We created a low maintenance, large contemporary terrace design using two different materials. This comprised of a timber deck area that contrasted against a separate stone area. This created interest and broke up what was an expansive space. The boundary of the terrace was framed with galvanised steel. Finally, we worked in containers with planting and evergreen box hedging, featuring skimmias, euphorbia’s, carex grasses and climbers on the dividing wall.

We take inspiration from our clients’ gardens and the landscape beyond them. The result of this project has been an impressive entrance from penthouse, to terrace – and an outside space that seamlessly merges with the urban scenery beyond it.
