ABOUT THE PROJECT
What do you do with an old, over sized and under used pool? You think out of the box and convert it for today’s modern living and create a smart, chic urban oasis. The new layout means we can reuse the swimming pool and use the excavated space to our advantage. The owners were looking for an easy to care for and garden to include a backdrop for a series of contemporary sculptures. The best place to start was to remove the pool. The layout of the garden had to make it possible to host large gatherings, while still offering an intimate, urban oasis feel. It also allows us to create two key spaces, the first being an immediate connection to the main kitchen which extends to a sheltered dining space, the second space is more intimate and private whilst still allowing uninterrupted views from the house to the main garden sculpture. Through simply converting an unused and over sized pool, the owners now have a series of unique garden spaces that compliment both their home and lifestyle.
OUTHOUSE design are honoured to have this unique garden win a number of awards by the Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers for the project design as well as being awarded by the LNA Masters Landscape Association for the construction by Urban Garden Enrichment.
