South Coogee Project

Year: 2021

Our brief was to create a coastal / Hamptons retreat for our lovely client’s.  We achieved this through a simple colour and materials palette featuring lots of white and natural materials such a light hardwood (allowed to age), stone and lush broad leaf tropical plant varieties, such as Bangalow Palms, Elephant Ears and Giant Birds of Paradise which pop against the crisp colour palette.

The custom bench seating built into the white rendered garden bed which flows into a gentle curve around the property boundary, creates an inclusive and social garden space and perfectly frames the backdrop of Bangalow palms.
