Project year: 2017
Posted: 30 Aug, 2017
As part of the RHS Young Designers 2017 competition, which has become a stepping stone for many new talents, three finalists were each been given their own show garden at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show, with a brief to create an outside office space.
A hot-desk office designed for an urban surrounding, Studio Unwired has a contemporary style with a rustic elegance. Defined working zones include desks and a relaxed seating area amongst gnarled pine trees which offer a visually distinctive canopy. A pergola is divided into three different sections - open, semi-sheltered and enclosed, allowing different levels of exposure to the elements.
The garden takes its inspiration from maritime dunes and coastal hinterlands, and is inspired by the designer’s childhood memories of Baltic landscapes with a controlled palette of flowers and grasses that are a stark contrast to the urban office environment. Ula used Scottish Beach Cobbles sized 75 - 50mm to line the water feature and smaller Scottish Beach Pebbles in a mix of graduated sizes to scatter around the garden, all donated by CED.
