We were honoured to participate in the Luxury Home Show event ‘Build Your Dream Home’ by Taste of life magazine in 2016.  This private invite only event showcases only the best Vancouver has to offer in construction, design and home products.  An original design by Swick’s company owner, Ron Swick.

The ‘Floating Fortune’ garden was completed with only 2.5 days to build and the crew working around the clock.

The highlight and centerpiece of the traditional Asian water garden was an oversized moon gate made from natural basalt stone. With a floating cedar and basalt bridge, tea garden, natural basalt stone walls and west coast native plantings this garden turned out to be a beautiful backdrop for photos all through the weekend.

Check out these time-lapse videos of the event!
