Below are examples of some my design projects:
Long family garden, London
This design brief had to consider a long and sloping space and cater for a growing and active family. I created a journey through the garden and distinct points of interest in all areas of the garden so that the garden was more fully used and there was more of a sense of cohesion between the areas.
This design project re-imagined a 4.5 hectare riverside community green space, that had originally been created in the late 19th century. My design included a new layout to reflect better how the space is used. Screening to hide a busy road and soft planting with structural elements ensured that the space had a feeling of enclosure but was welcoming and safe for users.
Large country garden, Oxfordshire
Extensive renovations made to the barn and farmhouse had left the large 5 acre garden (formally farmland) disconnected with the buildings. This design reconnected the outdoor space 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 dominated by lawn and forgotten flowerbeds. Key to my re-design was the creation of grown up seating areas with contemporary planting. In addition, I included a more defined space for entertaining and updated the plant beds to include a mixture of ornamental and edible planting.
Children's nursery school playground, Bærum
Staff were looking for fresh ideas on how to create a more inspiring space for the children (aged 1-6). My design centres on creating seamless flow between distinct play areas, incorporating natural elements such as living willow and landforms and offering a sensory planting scheme.
CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS. Conceptual overall design agreed July 2018.
Phase 1 design completed in September.
