The House in the Garden of Ghosts
Do you remember the hauntingly beautiful
It is the magically imaginative garden
built on a former private zoo in Sydney
which has won quite a few landscape awards.
Well, let's take a peek at the house
at the centre of the gorgeous garden.
The architecture is as eclectic as the garden.
Allen Jack + Cottier were asked to design an
extension to the High Victorian building,
incorporating a dining zone + a bedroom,
while adding light to a formerly dark living area.
This glass boxed structure,
screened by an enormous steel mesh curtain,
was their thoughtful solution.
The new extension and the garden
just seem to belong together.
As good architecture and landscape design should.
Can you imagine a lazy sunny Sunday breakfast here?
Sounds good to me!
