Below are examples of some my design projects:
Large family garden, London
This design had to overcome a long and sloping garden and the challenge of creating a garden for both grown ups and two active boys! I created distinct points of interest in the garden with flow and cohesion between them.
A close up view shows the grassed walkway through intensely planted beds on either side with scented roses and perennials in shades of purple and pink, the client’s preferred palette of colours.
This design project re-imagined a 4.5 hectare riverside community green space, that had originally been created in the late 19th century. Now used primarily as a lunchtime respite for office workers and summer events, the layout was updated to reflect this. Screening to hide a busy road and soft planting with structural elements ensured that the space had a feeling of enclosure but was welcoming for users.
Country garden, UK
This large 5 acre country garden, formally farmland, was sprawling and disjointed. Extensive renovations were being made to the barn and farmhouse. So the garden design reconnected the garden with its new home as well as the surrounding countryside beyond. The design reflected and celebrated the heritage and nature of the area.
Clients expressed a desire to have a walled garden so I designed a more contemporary interpretation. Formal clipped hedging and strong grasses created strong forms and structure all year around. This space, in contrast to the wild garden beyond, felt very calm and secluded,
Town garden, Oslo
This family garden was in need of an overhaul as it no longer met the family’s needs. The garden was dominated by lawn and old flower beds. Key to my re-design was the creation of low maintenance high impact contemporary planting around intimate seating areas as well as a freshen up of existing flower beds to include ornamental and edible planting.
Children's Nursery garden, Bærum
Staff were looking for fresh ideas on how to create a more inspiring space for the children (aged 1-6). This design needed to be an all year round garden, to include an area for growing food and space for the nursery’s outdoor communal activities. My design centred around creating a sensory garden. Scented, colourful flowers, living willow dens and lots of natural play elements to stimulate imaginative play.
CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS. Conceptual design agreed July 2018.
