Another successful collaboration with Water Motion Energy, and another prestigious award: the Landscape Association of South Australia 2013 Judges Choice award.
The client brief was short and broad. The owner being well travelled throughout the remotest parts of all of Australia he has an affinity with the rivers of Australia, and wanted this expressed. He also stipulated a map of Australia be included.
We took the direction of designing the ponds around the serpentine nature of rivers, including spillways alluding to weirs, and planted areas both inside and outside to replicate the headlands left after flooding and the changing of a rivers direction.
