About This Project

This somewhat challenging hillside property, with typically Wellington coastal winds, called for hardy plant species and careful planning to create new play areas and outdoor living for the clients family. The addition of insitu concrete retaining walls and good drainage allowed for a spacious lawn area and new fort. An outdoor fireplace, lighting and new cut concrete terrace created an appealing outdoor dining space with extended seasonal use. Natural materials were favoured with Kwila timber capping on walls, stairs and built in seating to soften and contrast the concrete walls and exposed aggregate concrete paths and terrace.
