SGD AWARDS Finalist part 2


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.
