Commercial Outdoor Courtyard Design

The goal for this Hotel was to create an attractive and dynamic Outdoor Courtyard that looks great both day and night.

The challenges for the area was working with a small space surrounded by high concrete walls, meaning the garden received little natural light. The first step was to choose a bright, warm colour for the main feature wall. A rich, bold orange was chosen along with Bluestone pavers for a smaller wall. A stunning metal screen in gold was placed on the third wall. The floor has been paved using a modular irregular format in Lichen Splitstone. The colours in the stone and the laying pattern gives the effect of movement in the garden.

The right plant choice for the courtyard was vital due to the sites restrictions. The plant selection reflects the desire of the client for a low maintenance, vibrant garden, that can survive in the mostly shaded area.
