Winchester Residence

Project Highlights

Close collaboration with project architects and direct client relationship allowed the landscape to achieve a very unique design brief
A sophisticated and cohesive landscape design achieved through acknowledgment and use of the architectural language of the project and utilisation of high-quality materials and finishes to create a unified design.
Retention of existing landscape which informed the proposed design, therefore grounding the built form within the landscape
LEAD were engaged as Landscape Architects for 11B Winchester St, a new private residence located in Southport close to the Ferry Rd Commercial Centre and Nerang River. The development involved the construction of a new private residence and included retention of existing mature vegetation, feature gardens, central courtyard, screening and informal path connection to the neighbouring residence.

The project included a unique set of requirements by the Client including retention and protection of existing significant vegetation and the provision of an informal path connection across the property boundary to the neighbouring property which was a relative of the Client’s. The proposed architectural form included several outdoor terraces and consideration of the relationship between these spaces and the surrounding landscape was essential in grounding the built form within the wider site.

Our Approach

A sensitive approach to the retention of significant existing vegetation on site was essential to the overall design approach and was used to inform the design of the proposed landscape areas and species palette. The existing vegetation allowed the proposed residence to be instantly grounded within the existing landscape and additional key feature trees and landscape areas were proposed to the outdoor terraces to immerse the built form in landscape and maximise the potential for bringing the landscape inside on key view axes.
