The dynamic designer that is Kazuyuki Ishihara returned to RHS Chelsea in 2019 to claim yet another gold for his garden ‘Green Switch’. Life today can be extremely stressful and we all need to make sure we take time away from these stresses and switch OFF. The ‘green switch’ represents spending time doing the things we enjoy such as spending time with nature.

Kazuyuki’s design was intended as a city garden featuring a garden house with a tea room and a parking space below. The modern glass building with sedum covered roof featured an interior decorated with white plaster stencil. The white framing harmonized with the green encouraging ‘a calming of one’s heart’. The glass walls of the tea room and shower room creates an open atmosphere and enables one to access nature even when indoors. An old motorcycle and, an old audio set, could be found in the garden, loved items from everyday life. These items evoked feelings of nostalgia in the show’s visitors.

Kazuyuki Ishihara took a wide range of products from CED Stone for yet another fantastic creation.
