Quake Re-shape Residential

Taylor Design Ltd - is providing a working solution to those looking to move forward post - Earthquake.

People tend to fit into one of 3 categories:

  1. New build a on your existing land (section).
  2. Repairing and making good your existing house and land.
  3. New build on a new piece of land.

We all have been affected one way or the other by the seismic events in Christchurch / Canterbury. Some have endured more than others. We all have stories to tell. Living through this hasn’t been for the faint hearted. This for most has been a long stressful exhausting process and fraught with such uncertainty.

However on a positive note out of adversity there can be opportunity… Be it by design or necessity there is often an opportunity to move forward. Taylor design has set up a service to make this transition happen as easily as possible. Whichever one of the above categories you fall into, establishing a new garden or re hashing the existing garden will be a big part of your new-build/re-build process.

There can be some stimulating, invigorating, positive and therapeutic benefits… Since “time immoral” these feelings have been associated with gardening, and gardens often referred to as being “Good for the Soul”.

At Taylor Design - Landscape Architecture we plan and design gardens and outdoor environments. Not only for the city/suburbs, but also for country gardens in the rural areas too.

Post-earthquakes there’s a growing awareness. Never before has there been such a need or opportunity to emphasize the importance on achieving a successful integration between the interior and exterior elements of your home. Landscaping is the thing that fuses, melds and anchors the built structure (your house/home) with that of the land it sits on.

Moving forward… has provided you with an opportunity to be involved in the design and creation of your new outdoor environment. One that should be designed specifically to your personal requirements and lifestyle needs. What better time than now to embrace this opportunity, to incorporate what you want and let us help you achieve this seamlessly without any of the stress.

At Taylor design Ltd we want to help. This is what we are experienced at and enjoy doing.

Planning application and resource consent matters.

Taylor Design - Landscape Architecture is very passionate about the planning process of any project...

Commercial landscape design is an interesting area to work in; it has a unique criterion given that many of the works in commercial environs are site specific, often a mix of larger and smaller projects with such diversity. This requires the skill of a professional to ensure the specific brief of a project is achieved. We have a wealth of over 35 year experience to draw on to ensure a project meets all the objectives.

At Taylor design Ltd we plan and design outdoor spaces, environments and gardens for Commercial developments:

  • Schools
  • Early Child care centres etc.
  • Subdivisions
  • Office and warehouse developments
  • Retirement complexes
  • Motel and Apartments
  • Multi-unit development

Resource and planning applications

A Landscape plan is often part of a requirement that forms an integral part of the overall resource consent. It's important to take the landscape design through all the stages e.g. initial consultation, Concept Plan/preliminary through to the final landscape plan.

If a Landscape plan is to form part of the resource consent, a developer will be required to implement all things in accordance to the approved Landscape plan and will be monitored by the Council Authority to ensure the completed landscaping fits with the Landscape plan that was approved. It’s very important that you get this right!

In Christchurch never before has there been such a need or opportunity to emphasize the importance on achieving a successful integration between the interior and exterior elements of building development. Landscaping is the thing that fuses, melds and anchors the built structure with that of the land it sits on.

Moving forward Post-Earthquake’s has provided an amazing opportunity for a Developer or a build client to capitalize on.  Not only as a requirement to lawfully comply, but as an opportunity to go beyond and make a creative statement, to have the landscaping stand out and complement the building, setting it apart from others.

Helping with this is what we are experienced at and enjoy doing.
