Australian Contemporary Garden

About: This garden was produced one area at a time over 3 years in Geelong. The brief was to create something with a contemporary feel that was vibrant. One reference material they gave me was Green Magazine - Sustainable Architecture and Landscape Design. 
Darren was meticulous with the installation and would keep going until things were done right. We sourced bluestone locally and from Portland. Old wharf beams from the other side of Melbourne and timber for the chairs from a demolished building in Port Melbourne


We strived to find what the essence of an Australian family garden was for this family.
