wallingford avenue

The Place:
Full back-to-brick renovation and extension of a Victorian property in Ladbrook Grove. 

The Brief:
Create a laid back, contemporary, design that looks beautiful when viewed from inside. To be filled with plants that have gorgeous big leaves, lots of green and not too many flowers!

The Design: 

We chose a soft creamy clay paver to line the terrace, the hard rectilinear lines of the beds are softened as Hakonechloa and Pittosporum spill over the edges blurring the boundaries between hard and soft.

The dining area at the back is hidden from view surrounded by drought tolerant olives and salvia. Passion flower and scented Jasmin cover the walls and bamboo lines the back bed creating privacy and hiding the unsightly air source heat pump. It was a delight planting this project up, bees starting feasting on the new plants before they were even in the ground!

A bespoke kitchen sits outside of the house, and Nkuku terracotta planters are filled with herbs, perfect for seasoning the food as it goes onto the BBQ.
