When it comes to selecting designers, consultants and suppliers to collaborate with, we do our research. We require them to share our commitment to forward thinking and delivering the highest quality outcomes. An understanding of other design disciplines and willingness to put the end-user first is essential. It also doesn’t hurt if they have a few awards under their belt either. Landscape Architect Jack Merlo exceeds our expectations at every turn.
A quick glance at Jack Merlo’s credentials describes a pedigree that is unparalleled in Australia. Launching his eponymous landscape architecture studio on the tail of a Gold Medal win at the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower show in 2005, Jack and his team specialise in high-end private residential, multi-residential and commercial projects.
Working on projects of varying scale, from small private courtyards to vast residential gardens, communal roof terraces, outdoor entertaining areas and swimming pools, we were delighted to collaborate with Jack on Paxton and he was the natural choice for our upcoming development in Toorak.
New Age Sensitive Design
Something that we particularly admire about Jack’s work is his sensitivity to other design disciplines, such as architecture and interior design.
Jack described his integrated approach, saying “…we pride ourselves on attention to detail and a collaborative approach. With all our projects we like to keep in mind the end user when developing our design.”
“Moda are innovative developers who are committed to consistently providing a high quality product. They engage leading consultants ensuring that all aspects of the design from architecture to interiors and landscape are fully resolved, coordinated and finished to the highest possible standard.”
Toorak on the Horizon
Working closely with Jack and his team, we have kept the end user firmly in mind when developing the landscape design. For the upcoming development we are focusing on creating generous outdoor spaces that are private, lush and functional. We are excited to share more about this project soon – stay tuned.
