Shaftesbury Street, Thornbury

On a quiet street in Thornbury, four dwellings appear from the streetscape as one home—subverting the vernacular of a multi-residential development.

The front garden becomes a key focus—as though it’s playing the role the backyard usually would, with its generous sense of space.

Maximising individual gardens, landscape design draws on verticality—with Parthenocissus combining with the high timber pergolas, to create a composition with new and existing trees.
