We start off at the floating timber seating area! The bench has been secured into the block wall which has been cladded with real stone. Black limestone cobbles have been inlayed with raj green cobbles to create a beautiful traditional looking floor for the courtyard.
The sauna was sourced by our incredible clients, who have an impeccable eye for detail. We then painted the outside so it would match the aesthetic we were going for. We also used moderna porcelain in three different colours to create a path from the seating area to the deck.
You can see why this project has been named the luxury spa! Enclosed inside the custom made pergola and screening, we have a fully cladded bar and seating area, which runs into the timber decking, hot tub with custom hot tub surround and a full lighting scheme for those dark nights!
The back drop for the bar has been cladded with black slate z-clad and kandla grey 3D plank walling, and all the decor has been sourced by the client; it looks incredible!
Matipo always uses a low maintenance planting scheme, picking plants that have interest all year round. For this one, we have used: Phormium cookianum 'Tricolour', Phormium 'Rainbow Queen', Carex testacea 'Prairie Fire' and Ophiopogon plan 'Nigrescens'. We used a weed mat to reduce weed growth, and topped the area off with some lovely oyster pebbles.
All the screening is custom built, and has been sanded down and oiled using an array of different coloured oils from Osmo. The screening also has an in-built lighting scheme all the way around.
