This luxurious, exquisite villa is designed in the true sense of outdoor living. The property, with an outdoor kitchen and dining area, envelopes an elegant, high-spec. swimming pool. The black porcelain tiling enables the conventional-use swimming pool to double as a reflecting pool, which mirrors the architecture of the surrounding house. After dark, the glow of the lighting makes this a romantic, serene and sublime destination.
The conservatory, used as an office, directly overlooks a natural swimming pond, where the water comes right up to the conservatory. The pond is nestled in soft naturalistic planting giving a wild, untamed feel. Hidden steps lead into the garden, which is overflowing with an abundance of roses and perennials and yields surprises at every turn.
A town house, renovated with flair, enables views, from the different floors above, to a strong geometrical design which gives structure to this garden and a sense of journey to the orangerie as a focal point. Betulas, framing the orangerie, give interest also in winter.
The property is in the centre of Richmond where the landscape garden is needed to screen off the hustle and bustle behind the property walls. Mature trees and a simple garden design give ample space for children to play and dining for the adults.
What better way to extend your garden’s potential than with a beautiful, integrated swimming pool? Katja’s background and experience allows her to offer a unique service in the design and build of both standard and natural swimming pools and ponds, with an innovative and integrated approach, to ensure that the pool remains in harmony with its surroundings.
Each pool is designed to suit the client’s needs, whether this is for exercise or leisure or something in between, and to blend seamlessly into the landscape.
A natural swimming pool or pond uses a unique filtration system to keep the water clean and clear, without the need for chemicals. Based on the way plants filter water, a bio-filter replaces the standard chemical plant without compromising on safety requirements. It’s an approach which offers a living pool with low energy costs, ecological benefits and the delight of freshwater, chemical-free swimming year-round.
This London garden has ample space for luxury outdoor garden swimming pool, designed into the landscape. This allows not only an area for outdoor kitchen and dining for the adults, but also a landscaped garden for the children.
A vast luxury home with landscape gardens, water feature, reflection pond, plants and structure are key to the garden design element. Woodland planting, formal planting, Mediterranean planting and naturalist planting give character to the property. The beautiful character of a multi-stem tree is reflected in the indoor luxury swimming pool.
Plants are the backbone of all life on Earth and an essential resource for human well being. Whether planting is to be architectural, to soften the landscape, to increase wild life, waft with scent or be intense with colour, Design by Katja ensures the planting is an integral part of the garden design.
