The brief on this Mairangi Bay property in simple terms was “I want to be in Fiji without leaving my backyard”. With this in mind and an openess for creativity we went about our task with a passion.
The interest and challenge was the movement and placement of 40 tonne of boulders. In the middle of winter and limited space this was not for the faint hearted.
These were incorporated as a dual effect in being used for creative retaining as well as adding strength and contrast in the garden.
The major success of this landscape is the clean and fresh prescence of insitu concrete that incorporates white cement and limestone.
Result: The balance between practical space and tropical paradise has been wonderfully received by this happy family.
