This project consisted of a complete renovation to the dated courtyard of this Paddington terrace as well as a refresh to the planting at the front. A strong element of the brief was to create a European ‘piazza’ vibe to act as an extension of the home. A mature Olive was chosen to become a focal point and balanced with formally arranged layers of bold, verdant foliage. A copse of Tropical Birch to the front garden provides dappled shade and respite from the hustle and bustle of the busy street. This project enjoyed a strong collaboration with the clients.
