We Love Plants - Nic Howard
Scope of Project:
Landscaping works to the garden and garage, wine cellar and gym extension to the house
The project is predominantly external paving providing a beautiful landscape and a spectacular floating set of entrance stones.
The original house had been extensively remodelled in 2015 and incorporated Portland Stone both internally and externally. For this final phase of work the clients visited the mines and factory to select the stones a remained very actively involved in the design and the progress of the project.
The entrance steps were design by the client in collaboration with our senior estimator, Darin and the rest of the team. He wanted them to appear as if they were floating, with lighting incorporated to enhance this illusion at night. Underground heating will ensure that the stone remains frost free without the need to use damaging de-icing salts.
The garden is divided into a number of intimate areas, and the Stonehills Whitbed paving is a perfect foil for the dramatic planting and the magnificent swimming pool with a glass wall infinity edge.
New Portland Jordans Basebed sills were incorporated into the garage/gym and wine cellar extension to complement the existing building.
