Five yards, seven years in the making.

Over the past seven years we have been catching up with a friend and discussing options, first to renovate and then to build a house to retire to. The conversation turned to the garden - that is where she wished to retire.

The plan was designed around the desire to be constantly engaged with the garden. Rather than a simple glass cube, the garden was to articulate the house and in return the house would articulate the garden. Each room has a corresponding garden with its own aesthetic and composition.
