Project Highlights

A collaborative approach towards landscape design with Client and Architect to deliver an integrated and considered design with formal garden principles

LEAD were engaged by the project Architect to complete landscape architectural services from concept phase right through construction for the proposed Albatross residence. The project included softscape and hardscape treatments to the ground floor including design and coordination of pathways, feature pool courtyard, breakout spaces, screening, and backyard area with access to the beach. The design incorporated high-quality materials and finishes and used a mixed hardy plant palette to create a range of spaces with visual variety and effective screening/softening of the built form.

The residence is situated on a narrow lot and the proposed architectural form utilises most of the width of the site, so breakout spaces and internal landscape areas were critical to the success of the project. The project required imaginative approaches to ensure effective screening and amenity within the landscape along with sensitive design to the eastern interface with the dune areas and A-line.

Our Approach

The careful use of the available space enabled the design to achieve effective screening and allowed for the creation of spaces for sanctuary and relaxation within the landscape including a central pool courtyard which effectively provides views to the landscape from multiple rooms inside the house from 2 levels. The central pool courtyard provides an area for both recreation and relief within the site. The backyard design involves soft landscaping and creates a direct relationship with the surrounding beach and dune landscape
