Balmoral Ave Kew
Balmoral Avenue, 2010-2011
Collaboration with Phipps Architects
A contemporary architectural renovation with a pool, the garden provides a landscape grounded in natural materials, fluid plantings and interconnected spaces. Random steps of exposed aggregate provide thresholds to the high-end architecture. Riverstone provides a natural, highly-textural garden bed cover interspersed with bluestone steppers, leading to basalt paving. Throughout the planting is as informal as possible and varied and any appearance of formality is downplayed.
