Bridged - A striking bridged entrance

A metallic bridge is part of this Auckland home's striking entrance complete with a water feature and walls all illuminated with fibre-optic lighting.

A metallic bridge

Lighting cycles through green, white, pink and blue or can be kept stationery on one hue with the flick of a switch. Each colour casts its light over the backdrop, dancing on the water of the pool and on the plastered concrete block walls finished in shimmering Resene Enamacryl Metallic in Resene Aluminium (silver) and Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Gunsmoke (grey).

Dracaena (dragon tree) features strongly in the garden planting, a slow growing, drought tolerant variety happy to reside in containers that will reach up to 10 metres at full maturity. Teamed with Vriesea hieroglyphica (King of the Bromeliads) impressive yellowish leaves banded with dark green, and a mass planting of Linope muscari with grass-like leaves and violet flower spikes, the garden is a melding of distinctive day and night personalities, each a joy to behold in their feature daypart.
