The Seaside Project

This second residence was designed primarily for leisure, for both parents and children. The bespoke glass balustrades allows uninterrupted views from all angles, ensures safety for children and acts as a screen in breezy weather. In a relatively small space, a swimming pool, enclosed for safety, leads on to a wild, free-flowering garden with naturalistic planting which can cope with the strong coastal winds and salt spray.

The planting design of the garden provides continuous and changing colour for 10 months of the year, starting with a carpet of spring bulbs, to grasses and perennials standing tall into winter. A secret garden for children is explored through pathways. The garden also embraces a hidden jacuzzi with views onto the dunes.
