Outcrop House

Posted on Tue, 14 Nov 2023 by midcenturyjo

Nestled on a hilltop with a stunning view of Whale Beach, this garden seamlessly integrates into its surroundings, appearing as though it naturally evolved from the earth. The landscape achieves harmony by blending new design elements with the existing natural environment, including a yoga deck, steel-lined pathways, and strategically placed sculptures. Addressing the challenges of the steep site, the plant selection, featuring Casuarina She-Oak, Gymea Lily, and Spiny Saltbush, aids in environmental sensitivity, stabilizing the hillside, and preventing erosion. Shaped clusters of Casuarina She-Oaks mimic the rocky terrain, echoing the architectural brilliance of the Peter Stutchbury-designed house. The meticulous integration of each element creates a tranquil retreat for clients and a sanctuary for local wildlife. Outcrop House by Pepo Botanic Design.
