The owner of this London back garden wanted to create an attractive outdoor entertaining space at the same time as disguising the rectangular shape of the plot itself.
Three seperate terraces were created that gave a dining area with built in barbeque, an alternative or combined larger entertaining space and a upper seating area under the shade of the existing trees. The whole layout was set at an angle with raised beds created at the sides to both retain the current soil levels at the boundaries with neighbours as well giving a greater sense of sitting amongst the planting.
London stock bricks were used to echo the materials of the house alongside more cost-effective limetone chippings. A drilled stone sphere was used as part of a bespoke water feature that brought subtle sound and movement into the space.
