Middle Park, Victoria

This tight space required some innovative thinking to make it all fit. A 2m deep plunge pool, heated to 38 degrees in winter, has given great usability to the small space – not to mention a lovely reflective quality. Built-in seating has freed up space, and conceals pool equipment and three large air-conditioning units in the rear corner of the garden. In summer when the Virginia Creeper has covered the pergola, the plants will provide a soothing balm of green in a garden where inherited deep concrete slabs prevented the introduction of more garden beds.
