The dialogue between architecture and nature has been a key interest of our practice since its inception. We place as much importance on the creation of outdoor rooms as we do indoor rooms, and believe each has much to offer to and inform the other. We believe in the simple, sensitive integration of plants with built form to be an essential ingredient to the success of ‘place making’. Our designs favour simplicity, quietness and an understanding of natural history and human needs to create gardens that provide joy and seasonal interest for years to come and reflect the uniqueness of each site. Each of our planting schemes relies on sound horticultural practices grounded in the understanding of the natural ecology of a site, its history and the natural cycles and ephemeral qualities of plants.The attractive elements of the existing Victorian house were retained and refurbished but the cellular nature of the Victorian plan was cut into and cut away from, to create an amalgamation of private cellular spaces and open communal spaces that represents the ideal configuration of the modern house. The new rear façade and garden exploit the environmental context and introduce light, shade, air, city views, and greenery to the historic interiors.
