THE GARDEN OFFICE
Marrickville Road, Marrickville | Backyard
ABOUT THE PROJECT – IN PROGRESS
This traditional family home is located in the inner west of Sydney, so the back garden is a real sanctuary for the family as well as the two dogs, but working from home can be a tad difficult, but with an addition of the garden office, life will be a bit calmer for all.
As the dogs are still young and full of energy, it was important to create a section within the garden that will allow them to be dogs and express themselves, so with a bit of creativity we designed an enclosure with a combination of timber vertical fencing linked in with the raised walls of the veggie garden. This allows the creation of boundaries without the need of harsh straight fences.
The back of the house has undergone an extensive renovation which included an architectural extension and bi-fold doors, so this allowed us the opportunity to highlight the palms with uplights, contrast planting and water feature.
An overhead structure links the home office, a feature circle of lawn creates a focus and the over sized steppers just makes access easy.
