    This design scheme was principally determined by the proposal to build a studio at the bottom of the garden. This meant the garden had to work 'both ways', considering the view from the house, and from the studio back towards the house. Furthermore the garden needed to provide a simple route or walkway from the house to the studio. The scheme was then developed around the idea of establishing a number of 'rooms' or spaces within the arrangement of the garden that the route could pass through, or by. These 'spaces' and the route through them, are reinforced by choices of materials and areas of planting and water. Underfoot timber and stone were selected to distinguish seating areas from the walkway to the studio. The timber walkway starts from the back of the main house, makes its way between the cooking, dining and seating areas and ultimately bridges the pond before landing on the porch of the studio. Along the route there are a series of planted areas that have been formed at varying levels in relation to the timber walkway.

    A range of materials were also used to form boundary treatments. These included timber, render, painted render, and a lovely green wall adjacent to the sitting room of the main house. The sections of painted render related directly to the interior colour scheme in both the house and the studio. This reinforced the sense that the garden is a simple transition from one interior to another. The 'rooms' of the garden are simply stopping off places along that route of transition, and facilitate activities such as cooking, eating, lounging, or just reading a book on the edge of the pond.

    The garden at Park Road was designed collaboratively by: ROSIE WINSTON, Clifton Interiors & MARK RUTHVEN, Studio Mark Ruthven
