My architectural practice designs both houses and their surrounding gardens for both town and country houses. I have extensive experience developing and designing rural properties in regional Victoria.
In town, strict planning controls, the need for sound environmental design, plus a desire for low water and/or productive gardens, increases the need for careful siting and a good connection/relationship with the garden and surroundings.
On small to medium-sized country properties, choices need to be made about the location of services, trees & other plants, fences, roads plus the positioning of the house and other buildings.
In order to make an attractive and practical place, many factors such as access to sunlight, the maintenance of views, and the control of wind must be considered and the whole arrangement of built and plant forms needs to be integrated into an effective whole.
Often creating this attractive space does not require costly additional elements, but instead, careful consideration of the whole arrangement and understanding how each element fits into the overall scheme.
Good architectural and landscape design advice can make the difference between a chaotic arrangement of property elements, ill-suited to the location & your needs, and an attractive, satisfying place to live.
