... a garden designed for a collector of contemporary art.
The North Adelaide Residence contains a number of distinct garden rooms and expressions. The front garden takes its inspiration from elements of French Renaissance landscape design. The formality of the turn-of-the-century Adelaide villa is echoed with a play of clipped hedge forms and a copse of crepe myrtles punctuate a plane of gravel.
The contemporary addition at the rear of the house is given space to breath while allowing for a number of different garden expressions, including a lush textural jungle garden, a generous lawn and stone platform for artwork, a contemporary perennial garden and tall hedging to define the various garden spaces.
