This, the second Beach Kids Centre carried a whole new set of challenges for us. The same unique design style was requested and key words in the clients brief were, natural feeling, texture, colour and discovery. Our canvas this time was an elevated bitumen carpark therefore our approach needed to differ immensley from the norm with areas of existing soil at a premium. The concept plan featured many of the same design features and elemements as the Waihi Beach branch, such as… Read more ›

The Omokoroa Show Home Garden at 51 Lynley Park Drive is all but ready for viewing. If you’re driving by anytime soon, drop by for a look at our modern, native planting scheme and lush tall fescue lawn.

Williams, Waihi Beach – design and build Waterfall, Deck & Gardens This was the very first time we had been asked to build a rock water fall and as excited as we were by the prospect we had one very obvious hurdle to overcome right from the beginning because there was no access for machinery. Our design and quote needed to take this into account with all excavation of the sloping eight metre site and most rock placement being undertaken… Read more ›
Jones, Waihi Beach – design and build This project coincided with a major extension and the remodelling of the existing house plus the construction of a new cottage, all sited on a semi rural property. The clients brief was basically quite simple; keep the rural and rustic feel, maintaining a sense of space for children to roam, play & enjoy, plus include some exotic elements to appease the adults.

Beach Kids Childcare Centre, Waihi Beach – design and build Another first for our company, this time a playground conversion. Our budget was lean and we needed to retain as much of the existing equipment as possible whilst breathing new life into the space. Our design was based around a tribal village style setting and with the creation of a series of smaller linked spaces the end result gives a sense of more space with separate areas for young children… Read more ›
Design and Build Brief: We were absolutely delighted to be approached by Jacob & Willie early in 2009 with the challenge of turning this once neglected but sheltered back yard into ‘The Secret Garden’, a tropical inspired sanctuary where they could showcase garden art and collectibles and offer a venue where individuals or groups could ‘escape from everyday life’. The first step toward helping our client turn this dream into reality was to formulate a plan which blended elements of design… Read more ›
