An 18m penthouse terrace in the historical Sydney precinct 'The Rocks'. We designed a combined vertical garden and water feature as the focal point for this unusual and challenging space (only 2m at its widest).
Made from the wonderfully textured and colored Corten Steel to compliment the existing elements of Sydney sandstone, recycled wharf timber, and lead, the half moon gardens house a tough collection of succulents, suspended over a bubbling up lit water trough.
Contemporary easy chairs and side table provide a private zone perfect for enjoying the soothing sounds of the water, coupled with matching bar stools that beg to be sat on with a glass of bubbly in hand over looking Sydney CBD and the wonderful St Patricks Church below.
Cloud pruned conifers provide an air of elegance and sophistication whilst fruiting olive trees provide an abundance of fruit for wicked martini's.
To compliment all of the elements we custom designed 'The Cog' - a Corten and powder coated steel planter for one of the olive trees and an under planting of thyme.
