My time in Australia as a kid surely brought on my passion for the outdoors. Outdoor sports, spending time in the veggie patch, tending to the garden. My degree in Architecture led to an interest in Garden design. A good garden design according to me is when the space is used in an optimized way, despite its size. Where it can have a multifunction, allowing both intimate cozy spaces as well as open spaces adapt for play, a colourful veggie patch as well as the amazing combination of colours and textures given by the choice of vegetation.
|I like the patterns created in this flowerbed. Very sweet.|
|I can see this being a great garden for an office building. Allowing the workers to eat their lunches in small secluded places. Getting an escape to their hectic day. Hearing the sound of the water trickle underneath them.|
|This is such a nice combination of different plants making it look very natural. Very "english cottage" style garden. Also the combination of materials is clever. Re-using the brick even for the bridge ties it all together.|
|Very modern. These hanging pots are very sculptural and create a unique feel. I would like it if some of them were used in different ways, for example to have an open fire?|

|I love the idea of having an open fire in a garden, although this one scares me a bit. Don't want to get distracted and accidentally trip over this fire place. But it does look cozy doesn't it?|
