We were commissioned to redevelop the garden around a 1970’s Ian Athfield home on a typically hilly site in the Wellington suburb of Roseneath. The project has been undertake in two stages, the first of which was completed in 2014 and the second is due for completion in 2016. An award winning extension to the house by John Mills was completed in the interim.
The design focusses on creating subtle interventions which work with the terrain and blend with the gardens forest setting. A sinuous set of steps were created to provide pedestrian access to the front door through the forest which was thinned and underplanted with shade tolerant natives.
