Through a strong collaboration between all design consultants, this garden located in the heart of Elsternwick has helped facilitate a seamless transition between the original Edwardian architecture and the sleek contemporary addition.

With strict heritage requirements in the front garden, heritage materials were used in the landscape however were utilised in a contemporary way. The planting is a fusion of some traditional favorites that integrate with the period facade, together with contemporary style plantings that provide sculptural and seasonal interest.
