The lie of the land presented presented major challenges due to the severe gradient and level changes. Retaining walls resolved these issues. A series of floating steps facilitates pedestrian access.
Concrete flagstones were laid on constructed pedestals and plinths to provide access and create interest and intrigue.
4-Way mirrored Trees
The internal courtyard was empty, four wheeled tree boxes were planted using indigenous Lavender Trees (Heteropyxis natalensis).
