As Sydney continues to build upwards, rooftop gardens are finding their way onto the tops of some of the city’s most iconic buildings and private residences. Without doubt, this project is truly a favourite of ours, as the garden was designed to purposely frame one of the most spectacular views found anywhere in Sydney Harbour.
Working closely with Still Space Architecture, the areas set aside for the perimeter gardens were more than generous – and this ultimately proved to be a key factor in the project’s success. With such spacious areas to work with, the depth of these gardens offered more than enough room for layered plantings, combinations of textures, and the development of intricate forms and shapes.
In every sense of the word, this is a true garden.
A lack of established tree canopy, and an elevated and exposed position means the garden must survive full sun, frontline coastal conditions, strong winds and driving rain. To say this was a challenging location may be somewhat of an understatement. As a result, the planting palette of hardy and proven species made the most sense when considering arrangement. Once finished, this unique rooftop entertainer’s paradise was furnished with outdoor furniture from Tait – rounding out a perfect Sydney garden.
We acknowledge the Cammeraygal people, the traditional custodians of the land and waters on which this landscape sits.
