Landscapes by Cos Design

COS Design was formed in early 2000 by Steve Taylor, and has since become one of the country’s most highly regarded and awarded design companies. Steve and the team specialise in a professional design process, from consultation to concept plans through to part or full working drawings, 3D modelling, tender management and contract admin/project management services.

From facade facelifts, extensions and outdoor room/pool house concepts through to full house and landscape design packages, COS Design ensures both home and surrounding landscapes work as one.

A collaborative effort between COS Design and several other companies was required to achieve this immaculate landscape.

The brief was to create a modern garden with a high aesthetic value from all internal vistas and the street frontage. Functionality was also a high priority, with entertaining friends and family

a regular occurrence. The other tricky element was that the home’s architecture didn’t match the modern pool house, so COS Design was commissioned to create a palette that worked with both styles while somehow blending them together.

A project of this scale is rarely achieved without facing a few challenges along the way.

The site access was constantly interrupted by the home’s construction team and there were many elements that had not been considered for the landscape build.

A joint effort and precise management meant these issues were worked through quickly and effectively to accomplish this polished, sophisticated and timeless masterpiece.

The completed, pared-back design of this contemporary landscape fits hand-in-glove with the minimalist architecture of the home and its distinctly modern interiors.

The clean, crisp landscape features sleek uncluttered lines and a restrained modern palette of colours and materials. The result is a series of open and airy spaces and a seamless interior-exterior transition.
