Frog Palace is a loving retrofit of a post-war, double-brick construction. Over 25 years, the original grass-desert has been replaced with an orchard, chickens, veggies and herbs, as well as zones for native species. A partial land swap means that instead of a shadowed back-yard, the garden now enjoys a double frontage. Our expanded northern aspect delivers solar passive comfort as well as savings.
