Designed to celebrate the RNIB’s 150th anniversary, this garden is a place in which the community can come together in a relaxed and informal space. Corten steel screens, in which windows with filters are cut, allow visitors to experience what it’s like to suffer some of the conditions leading to sight loss. Shade-loving planting contrasts with the sun-loving, fragrant, and sensory types.
This contrast between light and dark planting is a key element to the scheme and represents the difference between full vision, partial vision and total sight loss. We donated our striking Firebird Gneiss rockery stones to the garden.
