What will we be undertaking: We will be designing and constructing a Newari style garden with a contemporary edge. The design is evolving as we undertake the project. However, we are building walls out of brick with a traditional Newari Style. We are making a outdoor bath out of copper in the shape of a giant leaf, creating some utility spaces and using a lot of plants. The site will be constructed using second hand materials where possible. I am a Landscape designer from Australia and I have with me Architects from India and Malaysia and other friends we have made along the way. We would love to see you here.
