Cambridge garden

This design aims to create an immersive and precious living space in the landscape.

The local countryside is brought into the garden, and in turn into the house. Seasonal transformations are emphasised and celebrated through naturalistic planting. Alongside
this, a simple, restrained palette of hard landscaping brings a sense of calm and stillness amongst the loose, ever- changing planting.

Planting close to the glazed elevation of the house blurs the boundaries between house, garden and landscape, integrating daily experience of all three. Trees and other planting screen views from the house to create a sense of intrigue and discovery. The transition from house into garden is via a single step, creating a feeling of stepping directly into the landscape.
