This tiny outdoor space flows from the ground–floor living area to create a relaxing outdoor room. Restrained use of materials and clean lines enhance the sense of space. Planting is restricted to just three easy care species that look good year round.

“The challenges that came with our small garden were several and serious: north facing, dark, enclosed, ending in a huge expanse of brickwork – with a 1940's concrete bomb shelter in the corner! The use of planting, materials, clean lines and subtle lighting has utterly transformed it into a magical and romantic place to be.”
