We were appointed as Landscape designers to work very closely with the clients and their design team to create a very special bespoke garden with references to the art deco movement. The house was being completely refurbished, which also included a swimming pool below the garden space provided.
Architect & Interior Designer : Studio Indigo
Landscape Designer : Bartholomew Landscaping
Construction and Project Management : Bartholomew Landscaping
Main Contractor : Seacon Ltd
We prepared a concept design with interlocking, strong geometric shapes echoing art deco patterns, with a stunning teared bronzed rill of water wrapping itself around one side of the garden falling into a bronze curved pool.
The source of the water runs down a drystone wall that has beautiful bronzed fins installed above it to screen the condensing unit that was located to service the swimming pool below.
The main terrace has been finished and laid in a rhomboid paving pattern with each piece of limestone being individually templated.
The central seating area was constructed of drystone walling with beautiful hardwood tapering slatted seating, which wraps around an elegant bespoke bronze fire bowl that is fed by gas from the main building supply.
Our clients stated that we had delivered beyond their expectations
Key trees were chosen for their all year round interest and have been carefully located to anchor certain elements of the design as well as create natural areas for shade. The planting is in the very early stages and will ultimately develop to enhance the space, infilling and softening the stepping stones and hard landscaping generally.
The front garden and driveway consisted of new piers, art deco styled railings with bronze inlays and a very specialised vehicular access gate that retracts along a curved channel to allow independent access via the pedestrian gate at all times.
Our clients stated that we had delivered beyond their expectations. It was an absolute pleasure for us to have worked with a fabulous client and alongside Studio Indigo and Seacon Ltd to create such a wonderful garden.
