The first garden square to be built in the heart of residential London for 125 years is being built and includes bold granite and a water feature.
The modern design by Landscape architect Phil Jaffa of Scape Design is in one of London’s most exclusive areas, between Harrods and Hyde Park. New flats will wrap around the garden on the 0.7ha site.
A bold granite-clad cuboid water feature forms the heart of the garden and “represents the adrenaline at the heart of city life,” said the architect. Plants form a tranquil setting and contrast York stone paving and Portland stone-clad wall columns. Meanwhile white-stemmed birch trees are set against a backdrop of clipped hornbeam
“A vibrant white wall of turbulent water will cascade over the front façade, counterbalanced with the elegance of gently rippling water across its sides.” The designer is making a replica of the garden for May’s Chelsea Flower Show.
