Maungawhau Garden

— Mount Eden, Auckland

XWD Maungawhau Lime Circle 101 web

This project involved Xanthe White Design interacting with an existing garden which already had layers of history and a significant treescape. Rather than a top down design which imposed an entirely new concept, the fresh ideas were woven through the fabric of the existing garden, blurring the lines between old and new. A collaborative project between designers and owners, the concept acknowledges that a garden is never finished but more a continued dance between its makers and the elements.
