This compact garden is situated at the back side of a home that has seen several transformations in recent decades. The clients have a strong interest in art, and imagined a fusion of indoor and outdoor spaces into one engaging environment. They asked for a garden that would have aesthetic integrity, imaginative forms and visually engaging expressions of the elements found in a garden. The layout interweaves patios, pathways and plantings into a space that provides ample space for outdoor activities, views, distinctive landscape elements and art. A sense of calmness and serenity is maintained despite the complexity of the garden’s uses and relationships.
