Collaborating closely with clients, landscape architect Jack Merlo and his team have transformed the luxurious Haverbrack Avenue's outdoor space into a beautiful and functional Mediterranean-inspired sanctuary. Embracing a sandy beige palette with olive trees intended to create the perfect shady retreat, 'Haverbrack' emphasises both structural and soft landscaping. With outdoor furniture from Cosh Living, this space has been transformed into an inviting and functional area, perfect for relaxing and entertaining guests just in time for summer.

Client involvement was integral to the overall success of the project.

Their owner’s goal was to enhance their high-end home's exterior, which fell short of their standards. They retained elements like the pool and building while working closely with Jacks's design team to realise their vision. The project involved presenting various concepts to the clients and seeking their feedback on colour palettes and materials. They settled on a warm off-white colour and travertine-like tiles, with neutral timber decking.

Cultivating a sense of place & utilising the abundance of outdoor space.

The choice of outdoor furniture and large clay pots from Cosh Living was crucial to achieving both beauty and scale. The furniture selection considered the clients' functional needs, including lounge pieces and daybeds from the renowned European outdoor furniture brand Tribu and Sofa from Australian brand Kett.

Making an impression with exagerated scale

The larger-than-life clay pots from Atelier Vierkant provided the perfect structural support for advanced olive trees, which were selected for their appealing foliage and suitability for the Mediterranean-inspired project. To soften the pots' appearance and create a balanced and visually pleasing arrangement, cascading rosemary plants were added.

  • Tosca Lounge Chair

    The Tosca lounge chair is simultaneously warm, inviting, stylish and intriguing. It was the first time TRIBÙ called upon a female designer to create an outdoor furniture piece and that is evident in the design. The extra-wide braiding material is genuinely innovative, which makes the material weather-resistant and surprisingly soft.
