Head down to our Eco Outdoor Richmond showroom in Melbourne to bounce some of your garden and design ideas off Mark Browning from Cycas Landscape Design. Eco Outdoor are privileged to be hosting Mark between 10-12noon on Saturday 5 November. So pop in with a load of ideas, a couple of pictures on your phone, some sketches, plant ideas or just come on in with an open mind and chat with Mark about how your outside space can be designed. See below an interview with Mark, and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
Richmond – 5 November 2011 – 10-12pm
Describe your style.
In a nutshell; modern contemporary. I love floating edges and cantilevers (hence why the guys and girls at Eco are always dropping rebated edge paver samples into my studio!). I also love natural stone and timber and always strive to combine natural materials into my designs.
What inspires you?
The American modernism and contemporary architecture in general; the Kaufmann House in Palm Spring by Richard Neutra in particular. The minimalist approach in landscape design always inspires me and I love seeing product used in unusual and challenging ways to create real beauty.
Your favourite outdoor space?
That’s a hard one… I’m torn between the magnificence of the Walls of Jerusalem national park in Tasmania and some of the incredible designed public spaces in and around Melbourne such as Federation Square. Oh and my own pool once the weather picks up!
One tip for people as they head into Spring?
Get ready for spring as soon as you can because the growth is going to be berserk. I’d also put your solar heating on for grand final day (either NRL or AFL) as a quick dip during game time can be very refreshing!
