This new build includes an enclosed courtyard for a block of flats which are aimed at young executives or city workers. The developer of this urban garden wanted the garden to be based on a piece of artwork, so we chose ‘Movement in Squares’ by Bridget Riley.
The philosophy of this urban garden design is to provide a serene natural space within an urban setting to help boost the residents’ well being with different textures and many different, soothing green plants.
From the plan the garden appears quite static; made up of various geometric shapes. However, from within there is much fluidity from; the curved benches and hedges, a flowing rill and the wafting upright plants of bamboos and reeds. A sunken garden and two vertical living walls also give extra dimensions to the space together with the added interest of wave-shaped benches.
