Penguin Garden

Completed: 07/02/2017
Location: Aldeburgh, Suffolk

Small, outdoor room designed as an entertaining space that provided an extension to the home. The penguins were at the heart of the design brief and therefore at the centre of the garden. They gaze down at the reflection pool with the 'Ice Flow' stones drifting through.

Suffolk Garden

Completed: 07/02/2017
Location: Suffolk

This project was a garden of many parts. From large, formally laid out gardens to modern outdoor living area with vegetable garden and grand drive, all set in parkland.

Rose Walk Garden

Completed: 07/02/2017
Location: Brockdish, Suffolk

This was an already well established garden, surrounding an historic house. Unfortunately, the central space which linked all areas of the garden didn't seem to work. We created a strong path and vista through the space, framed with re-positioned rose arches. The clients Dove Cote was used as a beautiful central focal point at the path intersection.
