This Sunshine North Opening continues with our theme of ‘Small spaces, Creative Places’.

Situated on a challenging corner site, this striking garden makes the most of views across the Maribyrnong River reserve and the dramatic rock faces of a decommissioned quarry in Sunshine North.

The property is part of a new housing development where the owner has made a determined commitment to sustainable design in his garden. The house has a small footprint to maximise the garden space. Clever use of rocks and fill from the site contributed to the construction of terraces and embankments filled with mainly native plantings, providing a visual extension of the natural riverside landscape.

For privacy, a stunning pink wall hides a secluded Tuscan style oasis from the street. The blue-green, greys and silver foliage of a range of succulents, shrubs and small trees are enhanced by colourful ceramic pots and a water feature.

The views from and through the house cleverly create a sense of large outdoor rooms and showcase how good design can enhance and enlarge a small home.
