This garden design for an elegant new build in Beckenham, South London allowed for an exciting exploration of the interplay of architecture, interior and garden. The architecture of the house has been transferred directly to the outdoor space, informing the structure or ‘bones’ of the garden. A series of connecting entertaining and green spaces have been carefully composed. Two generous terraces flow from the inside out to create separate spaces for both dining and relaxing close to the house. The pool garden, framed with architectural grasses, links with a calm and contemplative lawn garden, lined with pleached trees to allow privacy while still making the spaces feel open. The sophisticated layers and play of light created in this garden also carry through at night, when the spaces come alive with carefully lit trees.
