In New Zealand we love our views, but not everyone can afford a site with a 180 degree sea vista – that’s where a garden is a true asset to a home regardless of its size. One of the key elements we wanted to incorporate into our own house was the intimate link between inside and the outside. With a small house this is a simple way of making a space feel much bigger than it is by allowing the walls to appear to extend to the edge of the site. The seasons become part of your inside living as the plants grow and give both a visual and psychological breathing space.
