Younger Court, 2012-2015
Construction: Pacific Australis
Constructed over two phases, this sustainable garden provides its owners with a daily connection to nature. Indigenous plantings and a lively frog pond provide a sense of place related to the nearby Yarra parklands. An indigenous roof garden helps to maintain stable temperatures for the house and the solar panels, so they operate more efficiently. Productive garden beds provide seasonal food and grape hop vines drape the North-facing pergola, also shading the house.
