2014 Landscape of the Year
This garden design is set to be one of New Zealand’s premier residential projects, exemplifying excellence in design at all scales. The predominant design intervention has been to ensure a terraced modern house with an outstanding lake edge natural locations blends both modern and
functional outdoor living with a sensitivity to the environment. The retention throughout of a very New Zealand flavour to the design, using native plants and local materials in modern and clever ways to connect the different levels of the garden and provide views and connections to the surrounding landscape is outstanding. This is a space that the judges just did not want to leave! Every detail and connection has been well considered and the design of the landscape provided a surprise around every corner that draws you into and around the garden. A stunning example of the importance of landscape design in placemaking and a powerful statement on contemporary NZ garden design.
