A Layered Garden, Designed Around A Liquidambar Tree

Walking through this Camberwell garden mirrors the experience of entering the actual house, offering a journey reflective of the property’s architectural heritage.

The richly layered planting scheme in the front garden is tailored to the house’s ornate Victorian facade, while the pared back rear garden resembles the property’s contemporary extension. Underpinning the entire project is an existing mature Liquidambar tree in the front yard.

Ben Scott, principal designer of Ben Scott Garden Design, reveals the philosophy behind this majestic space.

A Mid-Century Melbourne Home In Near Original Condition!

Today we’re bringing you the North Warrandyte home of designer Vy Costen, marine scientist Andrew Costen, their three boys Jack (7), Charlie (5) and Finlay (2), and two dogs Duffy and Niccolette. The Costen family are actually next door neighbours to Anna Byrnes and her two boys, whose equally amazing mid-century home we brought you a few weeks ago! It seems like every second home out in Melbourne’s outer north-east is an architectural masterpiece. 

This 1950’s house is located in an estate on the former land of Koornong Experimental School, which operated in the 1940s. Many of the home’s original features remain today, including the wonderful exposed stone walls, timber panelling, and a charming 1950s kitchen!
