Idris Road Garden

r+m’s design responds to both the clients lifestyle as well as the leafy streamside setting. A perfect place to unwind and entertain, living terraces extend from the house stepping down to the streamside lawn. A small timber landing cantilevers from the lawn, 'floating' above the sparkling stream waters.

A lap pool with water blades, an overhead structure, stone walls and columns along with planting combine to create engaging outdoor living spaces. r+m’s thoughtful and elegant layout responds beautifully to the architecture of the house and its internal living spaces.

The planting palette evokes a sense of naturalness, the use of native species takes its cue from the historic riparian biodiversity of the area.

The honesty of the materiality comes through, with sand blasted concrete, corten steel, west coast schist and hardwood timber left to weather naturally.
