Residential / Ballast Point

Designer: Phil Ayling

This historical Victorian era house has a contemporary addition – it’s seen as a public asset and the relationship to the streetscape is critical. We built a garden that stitches the old and new in a harmonious composition. Corten steel and in-situ concrete are blended with traditional materials like sandstone.  Natural bedrock has been exposed and polished to compliment sandstone paving. Detailed craftsmanship has created a number of distinct spaces and hidden places.
