GALLERY CAFE GARDEN
The client for this project had recently purchased a high street premises to turn into a gallery. The garden was to feature art works, and house a small cafe in an outbuilding at the rear. We wanted to design a creative space, that leads the visitor on a journey through the garden, uncovering art and secluded spaces as they go.
We produced two fairly different concepts to the client, and once they had chosen we worked closely with the contractor to select materials and see the design realised. A planting plan was also designed, we wanted a mixture of soft, long flowering perennials and more architectural shrubs to create a juxtaposition of textures in the garden.
