“City Living’, designed by Kate Gould Gardens, won awards at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. The multi-level installation, which featured materials ranging from light- transmitting concrete to glazed bricks, demonstrates how compact green spaces can be added to existing urban apartment buildings”
“‘City Living’, designed by Kate Gould Gardens, won not only a gold medal but also best in category award at the 2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The installation comprised a contemporary garden on several levels, as if in a typical urban apartment block. ‘While these dwellings can be cold and slightly forbidding in appearance’, says Kate Gould, ‘they could easily be transformed with the addition of attractive green outdoor spaces for residents use, with comfortable and sheltered seating areas surrounded by appealing planting and tranquil water features’. The garden could be added to existing buildings or incorporated into new builds to ‘green up’ city spaces and provide valuable habitat for wildlife and birds.”
