This project is set on the Long Reef bend in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. It has a 180-degree view of Lone Reef beach so a lot of the inside is designed to take in the borrowed views surrounding it. With this is mind it was important to create a landscape that did not take from the organic views outside, while keeping in with theme of the home architecture and beach vibe.
The design implemented natural cladding stone, neutral tones and low heath planting that was salt resistant and low maintenance. The pool was newly renovated to revamp the existing structure and create larger usable entertaining areas out the back of the property which once sloped from the boundary to the back of the house in very unforgiving terrain. Large existing palms were retained and used to feature the pool, and synthetic turf installed to minimise maintenance to the property could be enjoyed all year round with little ongoing garden work. Two water features were installed, one at the front of the property and one at the back.
