An inner city bush retreat

Location: Remuera, Auckland.

Project Description: Landscape design and construction.

Glade house is situated in a rare inner city native bush setting. It was important that the landscape design connect harmoniously with the architectural form of the house and the natural bush surroundings. Mass native planting schemes were used with a focus on lush greens, browns and deep purples to mirror the black walls and golden cedar slatting on the house exterior. Native trees Psudopanax and Nikau Palms welcome you at the entrance of the home, creating a tree house affect, allowing the house to become nestled into its natural surroundings. The existing Ginkgo playfully interacts with the west facing decking on both floors of this wonderful home.
