Combining water-saving technology with a contemporary, ergonomic design, the Axor Starck Organic range offers a collection of unique pieces that are destined to become bathroom icons. Inspired by organic forms and minimalist design, the Axor Starck range offers a highly tactile experience, defined by smooth, curved edges and organic, twiglike forms. The standouts of the collection are certainly the basin mixers, which feature a fluid design that harmoniously melds the waterspout and temperature control function into a single, beautifully unified mixer. www.christiaans.com.au

What was the client brief with this project? It was very much driven by the architect who had just returned from Kathmandu and was inspired by the internal courtyard concept. We also built on the idea of not having the gardens looking overly ‘designed’. What was your main inspiration? Aer we talked with the client we realised that we needed to incorporate a lot of native plants from SE Queensland. We then mixed in a few exotics and really focused on the overall look as we wanted to achieve something a lile rambling that had a structured yet seemingly unkept wildness about it. Were there any obstacles to overcome with this site? The site was very steep and the soil was fairly poor so we had to improve that. Then there was also the issue of the close proximity to the neighbours - as the house ﬁlled much of the block we needed to blur the site line and maximise every space available. What are you particularly proud of? The big thing was the increasing engagement of the client aer the job was completed. As the garden evolved over time so has his interest in gardening. He still involves me to this day as the garden continues to grow. Tell us a lile about the design? The goal was to plant things for the future, so we utilised the Queensland Kauri Pine which is planted on a lot of the hills in Brisbane so in the future it will be something that stands out and then in the central courtyard we planted a Wallemi Pine – they were two key, long term plants which we then surrounded with rainforest natives and exotics to create a lot of green on green and lots of leaf texture.
