About This Project

This impressive home has expansive views around the Wellington harbour with the exposed site that comes with that. The house required ‘grounding’ within the landscape, some privacy from neighbouring properties and flat sheltered areas for a young family to live and play. The brief required plants and landscape materials that would withstand the wind and the sea spray, complement the style of the house and bring in some colour. The answer was predominantly native species, as much plant texture as possible and shelter structures to enable the taller species to develop and provide further protection to the constantly evolving garden.
