The Waratah Studio is conceived as a private retreat, an inspiring communion with its surrounding environment. The structure will feature internationally as the focal point of the Trailfinders Australian Garden presented by Fleming sat the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show in 2013, a design by Phillip Johnson Landscapes. It will also be the centrepiece of the Australian Garden at the 2013 China Flower Expo in Wujin, a further collaboration between Phillip Johnson Landscapes and studio505.

Phillip Johnson’s works are unique and stand out due to his ability to capture the details that constitute the beauty of a natural landscape, combined with the technical skill and passion to re-create them. Powerful synergies are born of opposites, so where Phillip Johnson drew from details he observes in the natural landscape, we drew from geometrical abstraction as a metaphor for the rules governing the processes that generate a certain form of nature’s beauty, which can be reflected in architecture.
