North Dulwich

The Intimate Gallery 

Location: North Dulwich, London

With the creation of different ‘rooms’ and level changes using pleached Hornbeam trees and hard landscaping, we were able to make a challenging triangular space work hard for this family home. Composing a focal point from the dining room in the house was key and was implemented by introducing the snug area and fireplace framed with tall grasses that, once matured, will help bring definition to the separate rooms and foster a sense of intimacy. The planting of multi-stem Amelanchiers and Prunus trees adds texture, colour, and shape to the garden and the large topiary pillows bring form and structure to the space. A hang-out area with a large hanging seat is tucked away from the main garden behind a row of trees for privacy, perfect for the youngest residents to enjoy with friends.
