Renowned Australian landscape designer Jack Merlo connects urban living to nature by blending architecture and nature. Private courtyard gardens, arbours and walkways of cascading greenery create a leafy envelope for the project. The design brings the benefits of a backyard garden to inner city living. Tiles to balcony extend the floorplans to embrace the outdoors and mature plantings introduce layers of colour and texture. Balanced and in harmony with the wider environment, plantings are carefully positioned to filter sunlight, cool spaces, increase privacy and provide a relaxing escape from urban life.
