BLUE MOUNTAINS RURAL BEAUTY
Blue Mountains | Residential
ABOUT THE PROJECT
A once, clear block of land used as a private light aircraft runway has been transformed into a contemporary rural retreat. The garden is formal yet relaxed, offering extensive views of the incredible Blue Mountain landscape. We were engaged to collaborate with renowned architect Daniel Briffa of Adan Creative Design. This ensured a balance between the external and internal spaces was met.
The garden acts as an extension of the home. Taking advantage of the natural grade changes allowed for several outdoor rooms to be created. More so, this provided a greater connection to the site. The external areas are subtly divided into pockets with the expanse of the lawn acting as a seamless connection. A formal entrance with strong visual planting lines direct guests to the front entrance. Meanwhile, an informal aspect facing the bushland view lends itself well to the pool zone and family cabana area.
Following strict guidelines for designing within a bushfire prone area was a vital component of the design process. Through using non-combustible materials such as native, low maintenance planting, masonry retaining walls, large format paving and a stencil feature concrete driveway, we were able to achieve a sustainable and architectural landscape.
It’s a stunning home in an amazing location, and was a pleasure to work in collaboration with both parties.
