The entryway to the Camden mews is on the side of your home and accessed through the garden so the quick was to produce an useful location, to be utilized daily, that would likewise supply views out of the owner’s music studio. The owner likewise desired a very little and reflective style. With some smart landscaping techniques and a thick succession of spring bulbs and bloom through to summer season blooming perennials, biennials, and shrubs, Noble has actually had the ability to produce a transportative garden that offers year-round interest.

An existing extension in black wood supplied a beginning point for the smart and jailing landscaping components here. The limit wall is outfitted in large format porcelain tiles, producing a sensational background to the plants and a best counterpoint to the structure. The customer is a fan of Donald Judd and the flowing of the wall tiles were a nod to the artist’s minimalist structures. “Each tile is 1.6 x 0.8 m,” states the designer. “And I enjoy the interaction of the tile’s big scale in the compact area.”
The course, in a great limestone gravel, echoes the wall while beds are edged with curved powder-coated steel.
