Pruning Sarcococca hookeriana var. digyna 'Purple Stem'

I would like to put this in my small front garden. The size it will probably grow to will be Height 1.2m, spread 2m. To fit, I need it to be more like 1m wide. Can I do that with careful pruning or will that kill the bush off?
As they sucker you can dig or pull out/off any wayward bits. They are quite tough plants
I keep ours which is probably twenty years old, to a 40 to 50 cm by 30 ish width. brutally pulling and digging lumps off. It deserves better treatment it is so nice...
