Entertaining on different levels.
The design needed to include space for al-fresco dining, an outdoor fire and seating, as well as space for lounging. The garden was to be seen as a further extension of the house, utilising the same materials and aesthetic and high level finish.
This project had to deliver a lot within a relatively constrained space with a challenging 2.0m fall from the rear of the house
The spaces are segregated by planting and steps, leading you down to the pool house and outdoor fire. The outdoor fire creates an intimate space that captures the evening sun. Being at the lower level, it also feels secluded and is the ideal spot to relax after a swim.
The materials used very much mirror the property. The porcelain paving matches in with the kitchen tiles for that seamless flow, the colour of the pergola is the same as the window frames and the Accoya cladding detail ties-in with the pool house. The Corten ‘Designclad’ is sympathetic to the warmth of the Chesham-multi brickwork and the Vande Moortel brick details add a finishing touch.
