After twenty-seven years of one family's use, this large garden in Hampstead, London, was in need of a radical rethink.  A fresh eye was needed to breathe new life and character into its design.

Many years previously, the clients had installed a kidney-shaped swimming pool, which their children had enjoyed when growing up.  Now, however, it was barely used at all.  If the garden were to take on a new shape and stature, the pool would have to go.

We wanted to inject the garden with both classical and country references.  We planned a path to lead all round the garden, to include a stone-columned pergola leading to a dining terrace.  The focal point would be a pretty, octagonal gazebo with tile-pitched roof.  The effect would be magical and effective.
