Point Piper Enclave
Conceived as a private harbour enclave, the brief for this garden —located in Sydney’s prestigious Point Piper neighbourhood— was to create privacy and address external acoustics while limiting views to neighbouring properties. But it was also an opportunity to create an environment in which the client could experience, and connect with, the diverse beauty of nature.
To achieve this our team worked in layers, following the topography of the land to expose and direct views towards the harbour. Garden beds throughout have been redesigned to accommodate established trees, many of which were reaching height of 20 meters or more on installation. Together, they define the property boundary, providing the appropriate scale while delivering on our vision of a home recessed within the jungle.
Elsewhere, and by working collaboratively with architect Richard Archer of Archer Design we have created an elegant, seamless link between inside and out. Here, these external zones free-flow off the interior, creating a sophisticated yet secluded space to entertain, lounge and dine. Other structural works include reconstruction of external stairs and reshaping of the sandstone wall to achieve the appropriate flow and transition between levels.
