A Private Pool + Garden in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs
This garden and swimming pool renovation in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney was designed & built with the focus of accomodating the needs and desires of a young family. Establishing privacy from the neighbouring apartment buildings and a durable material palette were crucial to the success of the design, as was the addition of a spill-out entertaining area linking the indoors to the outdoors. Granite tiles and cobblestones were selected for the driveway, outdoor flooring and the swimming pool coping. Galvanised steel, off-form concrete, glass and both spotted gum & cedar timbers were included to further build upon the materials used within the home, creating uniformity between the house and garden. Clumping bamboo and star jasmine help to achieve a lush, green outlook without impacting heavily on the available space.
