Location | Mosman
This Mosman semi was reworked to take advantage of its street access. The pedestrian entry is via street level at the front, where new widened paths of granite stone open out into a private courtyard garden, enclosed by Jasmine clad painted brick walls.
A permeable pavement treatment and Dichondra plants at the rear of the site has been carefully worked in around a beautiful existing Magnolia specimen tree to double as off-street parking and a valuable open space area for entertaining.
The design is fairly minimalist and uncluttered in favour of functional use spaces, materials of grey granite and dark painted steel provide a calming back drop against a pared back planting palette.
