Villa Nostalgia, Woollahra banner

Pepo was invited to enhance the expansive grounds of Woollahra’s beautiful “Villa Nostalgia” during its most recent restoration by Luigi Rosselli Architects.

We selected a rich palette of lush varieties to invigorate the garden zones, focusing predominantly on white and green hues – punctuated by an eye-catching pop of bright pink Bougainvillea. Given the scale of the property, Pepo endeavoured to create a cooling canopy that skirts the edges and evokes a sense of atmosphere.

A Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei ‘Biloxi’ (Bioloxi Crepe myrtle) was positioned in the middle of the paving alongside the pool, which was renovated by KMD Construction, and this mature specimen was specifically selected to balance the expansive size of the home.

Neighbouring properties are screened by large-leafed foliage without detracting from the distant views, while bursts of sub-tropical planting serve to anchor the gracefully aged villa. In the seating areas, a selection of contrasting pots rest on crazy sandstone paving, planted with textural forms including Furcraea sp and fragrant Gardenia radicans.

The overall design is completed with lovingly-sculpted planters in the pergola area, hand crafted in Belgium by Atelier Vierkant in perfect keeping with this elegant home.

Our Story

Talented visual artist Nicola Cameron established Pepo in 2000, looking to weave her experience in photography and film into a different and creative living medium. Landscape design and horticulture provided the perfect platform to conceive her beautiful creations, passion for unique design aesthetics, and love of plants.

In 2007, Nicola’s husband James Perkin was appointed Construction Manager of Pepo, joining a team of specialists dedicated to turning a client’s dream into a practical and beautiful reality.

Hundreds of alluring gardens, courtyards, balconies, and rural retreats have been brought to life since the business began and the team continues to provide a premium landscape architectural service, brimming with creativity and inspiration every day.
