Felicia arent you faaabulous?!
[Webpage under construction!] Nunawading project to be completed Feb ’23. Design and plantscaping completed by Inspiring Landscape Solutions.
Project Brief :
- to build in an outdoor seating area where parents can relax in whilst children play;
- multifunctional and relatively low maintenance;
- compliment existing blue and white cottage weatherboard build elements and colours;
- incorporate some edibles;
- grass for play;
- material advice and selection;
- extra parking space and driveway space; and
- most importantly to preserve the existing beautiful mature Gleditsia feature tree!
- the play with curves and turning the steep 3m site level difference into a design advantage – this took a bit of thinking but love the way it all gelled together in the end!
- the tall corten planter boxes;
- use of soft pastels (yellows, pinks) to compliment the blues and purples in the planting palette;
- curved steel arbour and lovely subtle glass detail client added;
- play with words in naming the project (felicia is a plant used in the design and is a soft reference to the master in the house!); and
- textural charcoal river pebbles to finish off the hardscaping.
Pictures (limited angles) taken in Nov ’22 after completion of majority of works. Professional shots incoming in Nov ’23/24!
