COOLAMON SCENIC DRIVE
An approximate five-acre property on Coolamon Scenic Drive, a premier location in the northern rivers region, having significant panoramic views across Byron Bay and hinterland.
The house, designed by Sydney-based architect Alex Tzannes, was a striking feature to the local landscape and required sensitive blending with the site, while maintaining views and screening the adjacent roadway.
As it was a fairly open site needing significant water storage, a dam with screen planting around the boundaries was proposed with an exotic but simple garden within. A water feature accompanied the internal garden and protected open grass terrace on the lower portion of the site while designating areas for revegetating and screening from neighbouring properties.
The garden provided a variety of spaces, water features and open space for children’s play with a mixture of exotic and local vegetation.
