Kensington Three

This garden was designed for a couple who love to entertain and therefore it included designated areas for dining and comfortable seating. The original garden was overgrown and waterlogged so the new wish list was to open up the space and include a fireplace, water feature, vertical green walls for year round interest, a small lawn, electric sun awning, designer furniture by Fendi and a sculpture by Lorenzo Quinn. (The green wall established itself quickly and within two weeks of being planted a pair of robins were making a nest in one of the cells.)

Bespoke Moorish influenced mirror backed bronzed ‘trellis’ breaks up the green wall boundaries and creates reflection whilst cream limestone on the floor opens up the space. Warm buff coloured Norstone ‘Sahara’ stone cladding and bespoke metal finishes have been used on the fireplace, storage cupboards and water feature to create a unified and stylish garden that can be used year round.
