View Presentation


The Taylor & Cullity Residence garden was conceived as a composition, or score, revealed in parts through the experience of distinct garden rooms.

In this garden each room has its own character and mood, expressed in different colours, textures, forms and gestures. The choreography of each expresses different influences and ideas as well as responding to practical factors, such as aspect and existing building types.

The common thread throughout the garden is its preoccupation with expressing movement, as well as its recurrent use of materials and planting. Permanent and ephemeral sculptures appear in the garden, further layering the compositions.

This garden has been published widely both in Australia and internationally.
