The brief for this project was to transform a south-facing area of the garden no
longer used for a children’s play area into a space for socialising and
Landscaping and Planting
A fondness of the Mediterranean landscape stimulated
the ideas for a rustic loggia structure with a fireplace and built in seating.
Hamstone, with its orange and red hues along with aged oak beams helps create
an authentic look to the building, whilst a cobbled stone path, interplanted
with camomile, releases an arresting aroma when walked upon. Olive trees and
Italian cypress combined with lavender, santolina and herbs complete a genuine
Mediterranean planting scheme for this rustic retreat.
