A private sanctuary in the heart of city

Location: Parnell, Auckland.

Project description: Landscape design and construction.

A modern house and landscape located within the heart of one of Auckland's oldest suburbs. This project was a new design and construction build. Crescent house optimises open plan living flowing out of the house into the natural landscape. Large patio and lawn areas are bordered by screens and planting schemes designed to frame the landscape whilst offering amazing vistas to Auckland CBD and harbour.

Designed as a private sanctuary in the heart of an urban environment, native trees such as Puka and Nikau create a canopy for privacy whilst under planting of green grasses offer a lush low maintenance ground cover. A planting palette of greens and reds were used to complement the dark brown, whites and silvers of the house.
