Our client requested carefully detailed hard-landscaping and generous planting for this suburban south facing plot. We enclosed the garden with bespoke charred wood fence panels to create a jewel box garden. The fence integrates neatly with the semi-subterranean studio, designed to offer a place to retreat from family life and set discretely in the top corner of the plot, using the natural slope of the garden to hunker into. The studio glazing is detailed to mirror the garden, optimising the feeling of space. Subtle illumination enhances summer evenings outside and extends the owners enjoyment of their garden from inside, into the winter months.
