Lowry Bay Steps

This project provides a creative solution to a perennial Wellington problem of providing safe, low cost access on a very steeply sloping site. The scheme uses simple black stained timber retaining but plays with slatted overlay to create visual interest and provide safety barriers for anyone maintaining the planting above. LED lighting behind the slats provides a dramatic light play at night while providing soft, low-glare lighting to get you to the front door safely. A simple, easy care planting scheme was designed to minimise maintenance and survive on the tricky sloping site.
