One Saint Stephens apartment building is situated beside Parnell Cathedral and is a recently constructed landmark complex. The landscape challenges included the retention of an iconic Dracene tree that is the largest of its kind in New Zealand. The complex includes swimming pool area, vegetated balcony gardens and private ground floor patio landscape design. The exterior stone walls were designed to ensure the quality of the development was represented at the ground level street interface.
Our planting design, made up of a palette of unique tropicals and exotics complemented the sharp formal lines of the architecture and grounds whilst giving the property an overarching lush, green, tropical feel.
Planting was restricted to locally sourced natives that create a seamless transition to the surrounding hillside.
Our busy clients wanted their landscape to complement and enhance their outdoor, countryside lifestyle.
Our brief was to design an entertainment complex containing swimming pool, tennis court and pool cabana that complemented the architecture with expansive lawns and forest areas.
