Nestled in one of the city’s bustling harbourside suburbs, Joanne Green Landscape and Interior reimagined this Sydney courtyard to create a true inner-city sanctuary.
With a brief to deliver a contemporary and tranquil area that would encourage indoor and outdoor living, a design was established which encompassed space for outdoor dining as well as relaxed seating that could be enjoyed into the evenings with friends and family.
A new levelled entertaining space with New Guinea Rosewood decking created the foundation for the design, and from there layers and details were added in the form of planting, lighting and furniture.
The plant palette included a classic mix of resilient exotics to create an informal result whilst providing interest, texture and movement to the space. Palms including Golden Cane (Dypsis lutescens) and Kentia (Howea forsteriana) were selected to add privacy from the street, shade and a sense of lushness, while Chinese Star Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) and Stephanotis floribunda was trained to grow as a perfumed backdrop to the relaxed lounge area.
