Contemporary London Garden Design
This Contemporary Garden Design was commissioned in 2014 for a client in Caledonian Road, Central London. The client wanted to transform her overgrown jungle of a garden into a highly stylised contemporary garden that made a statement.
The brief was to reflect the stylishly eclectic interior in the garden and to redefine the whole space into three distinct areas; to reflect different moods, occasions and to track the moving sunlight throughout the day.
Josh introduced an enticing runway path that draws the clients from the main dining patio, through two still contemporary Japanese ponds, past a central reading area, with a rust finished bowl planter focal point, and onwards to a raised chill-out/cocktail area, at the rear of the garden. The raised rear patio has bespoke Danish inspired benches and table with Japanese inspired cedar screens on either side to create a more intimate space.
There are quirky eclectic nods to different design traditions throughout the garden and they are brought together in a contemporary guise to compliment the owners interior design.
The contemporary and somewhat architectural planting scheme was devised to make a bold design statement whilst leaning towards the unusual. It is a very sensory space with heady wafts of honey scents throughout the summer.
