Garden Brief

This is a calm, reflective, elegant, private garden space, with a simple geometric, layout of stone, water and planting that creates spaces for relaxation and informal entertainment. The design creates a strong composition of crisp forms and layered planes, combined with more naturalistic planting drawn from a palette of British native species. The design is inspired by sponsor Brewin Dolphin's ethos as a company: the materials are high-quality and durable; the design is bespoke and innovative, but firmly rooted in past traditions. The use of native British plants reflects the company's history, and the various spaces for entertaining and interaction reflect the importance placed on personal relationships and conviviality. The garden is designed to create a sense of comfort and security from the outside world.
