Seven Hills

Inner City Architectural and Contemporary

Project brief

Upon meeting this client we were faced with tight, steep access with very minimal room to work with. The brief was to deliver a very private tropical garden and bold entry that had a connected outdoor living space and pool that blended the architecture of the home into the garden. Also there were specific requests about the importance of clean details, functionality and quality natural material choices. This was a great challenge for the team.


  • The use of a natural screening of gracillis bamboo (even thou it was known to have maintenance) This was to create a fast and tall privacy solution as the planting complemented the theme.
  • The planting had to be perfect to complete the look, we chose spreading succulents to soften the hard stones, Creeping Fig to act as a green wall over the big white rendered walls through the entry way.

Structural Features

  • Private plunge Pool using local Ironbark decking surrounds with wrapped decking into the pool for a seamless feel.
  • Custom Aluminium gate house and block infills, the profile we designed allowed the eastern breeze to flow through while still creating privacy from people walking by.

Key Details

  • Striking lines in the cantilevered decking seats.
  • Natural quality materials such as Basalt Slabs, Basalt Stone Edging, Sir Grange Lawn.

Private plunge pool

When designing with minimal space, every measurement is important. We had to consider many elements in this area. We had to look at the balance and ratios on all heights, levels and transitions to achieve a functional yet flowing result.

Custom entry way

Large natural basalt stone slabs were used to create the transition from the front door to the custom designed gate house. Strong lines in landscape design lead your eyes.

Cantilevered seating

To create a modern and stylish effect, this floating seat creates an eye catching statement on its own.
