Kieron Gait Architects & Dan Young Landscape Architect, Whynot Street Carport and Pool
This new carport and pool by Kieron Gait Architects & Dan Young Landscape Architect in Brisbane highlights its surrounding landscape to provide a connection to place. The concrete carport roof is functional, while providing a terrace to enjoy the northern views. Utilising the slope of the site and stepping down the walls, the rear garden is connected to the gumtree green palette of Mt Coot-tha beyond. The use of excess stone leftover from the carport excavation around the pool gives the illusion of a natural swimming hole, with deep coloured water reminiscent of that found in a gully.

Kate Seddon Landscape Design, The Composed Garden
This minimalist design combines a natural material palette with a celebration of seasonality. Inspired by the natural and designed landscapes of both Japan and Denmark, Kate Seddon devised a series of layered spaces, providing areas for lounging, entertaining and transition. The rear garden encourages engagement with nature, transitioning from a terraced seating space into greenery, then a seating area with a fire pit. Paving materials including concrete and split stone pavers link the various spaces.
