A contemporary, sleek detached house situated on the water overlooking part of Chichester Harbour
I was commissioned by the client to work alongside the architect to produce the planting design and associated timber work to compliment the architecture of the building and hardscape. The aim was to achieve a planting scheme to allow the project to sit comfortably in its surroundings whilst satisfying conditions laid out by both local planning authorities and the Chichester Harbour Conservancy.
The main priorities were:
To shield the house from neighbouring properties, softening the new building to those looking in, whilst maintaining the contemporary design
To produce a planting design with varied height, texture and form in a bold design that changes and excites through the seasons.
To enhance and not detract from the spectacular view over the water.
To design planting to suit the different zones around the property, creating the right mood for relaxation, entertainment visually linking interior and exterior spaces.
To provide provision for the cultivation of vegetables and herbs in an attractive format.
