Project Title: Taylor and Cullity Residence

The garden is a composition or score revealed in parts through the experience of distinct garden rooms. 

Each room has its own character and mood expressed in different colours, textures, forms and gestures. The choreography of each expresses different influences and ideas as well as responding to practical factors such as aspect and existing building types. 

The common thread throughout the garden is its preoccupation with expressing movement, as well as its recurrent use of materials and planting.  Permanent and ephemeral sculptures appear in the gardens further layering the compositions.

The garden has been published widely both in Australia and internationally.

“...the gardens success is the play between landscape and art…The jury was impressed by the skilful achievement of cohesion through movement, this project adds a new dimension to the private garden.”
