Crushed White Marble


Gold Medal Winner

This elegant space represents the corner of a London garden square. Drawing inspiration from the residential squares of the 19th century and continuing the tradition of great London squares, the design includes four multi-stem Betula utilisvar. jacquemontii to create privacy and height. The marble sculpture by Frederic Chevarin reflects the colour of the trees.

Cream porcelain tiles form the surface of a raised area within the garden. An intricate steel detail runs between some of the tile joints and the steps up to this area have a triglyph detail. A unique and dynamic bench provides somewhere to sit and is also a piece of art itself.

The garden is surrounded by a mass of green and white planting, highlighted by pale apricot irises. White roses sit against topiarised mounds of Ilex crenata. The soft, abundant planting adds to the elegant and luxurious atmosphere.
