The brief was to create a native and edible habitat, a haven in which the residents could entertain, unwind and escape from the busy Melbourne streets. A space to grab the tequila, add a squeeze of lemon, a pinch of salt and enjoy relaxing in their own inner-city oasis.

Our approach was to create a minimalist architectural feel through the use of design elements like matte black aluminium planters and vertical gardens. Here, the plants created the environment with the city forming the backdrop to a wonderful outdoor dining experience.

An interesting and useful plant palette has helped to make this a truly contemporary Australian environment with its touch of edible flavour. During their maintenance visits, our horticulture team delights in watching the garden maturing and developing with each passing season. Could also just be the free tequila shots talking.

The owners love to congregate with other residents in the garden, picking herbs and cooking up a feast, or simply sitting amongst the wonderful green environment by themselves and enjoying some respite.
