This country estate played host to a grade 2 listed house, as well as a separate period outbuilding, both of which had had various architectural additions, resulting in a narrow empty corridor of garden space. The challenge for Aralia was to unify the two opposing buildings and overcome the difficulties posed, all in the space of a small courtyard of less than two hundred square meters. With the client’s children having left for University, the primary function of the space was also to be changed, as the country garden would be transformed from a play area into a functional and aesthetic threshold between the house and its outbuildings. Aralia Landscape Design created a space which incorporated the traditional feel of the architecture and surrounding rural landscape of this country garden, through a curvilinear design which blurred the strong geometry of the buildings.
Aralia provided a full Design & Build service for this landscape project, taking the project from concept through to full implementation of the whole masterplan.
