SGD AWARDS Finalist part 2

NATIONAL AWARDS

Our garden in the heart of Chelsea is a finalist in the SGD awards

Another difficult build - no access other than through the basement flat.

‘escape to Marrakech’ 

A tiny detailed Victorian basement apartment garden in the heart of Chelsea, only 2.5 metres long by width of apartment 13 metres. 

Blending subtle lighting, a tropical planting palette, simple, reflective, muted materials to contrast with Moroccan tiles. Calming influences transpiring to a magical space at night where shadows and patterns cast from bouncing light.

I took it upon myself to visit some key influential gardens and the Souks in Marrakech before designing this garden to best understand my clients requirements and develop my design ideas. 

I visited:

Le Jardin secret - Tom Stuart-Smith
Jardin Majorelle - Yves Saint Laurent
Mamounia Hotel
Bahia Palace 



I worked closely on all decisions with my client, a jewellery designer, who played an active role in the final dressing of the garden.

SGD AWARDS 2019 - Career Achievement

We've gone and done it........ I'm incredibly proud and thrilled to bits to be announcing we have been nominated as Finalists for 2 gardens in the SGD awards - Society of Garden Designers Awards.

A career ambition and goal. I constantly strive to create wonderful gardens for our clients, each green space that I work on I aim to  achieve an innovative and unique space and so I'm excited to share this one with you.....

NATIONAL AWARDS


Here's our FINALIST Garden 1 an urban garden in New Barn, Kent

A small modern urban garden in Kent with dominant TPO Beech and Holly trees dominating the space and crowding out the available light.

Influenced by the shade and the clients love of the colour red I have created a simple format, granite plank (hard wearing and easy to clean) paved garden with a simple palette of planting to create a wonderful green oasis.


We have used the colour red inspired by my clients home that includes the accent colour red, connecting the planting and feature focal point fireplace to the interiors.



a huge thank you to our wonderful clients.
