Imperfect Interiors
This lovely Victorian house in Battersea was tired and dated before we opened it up and reconfigured the layout. We added a full width extension with Crittal doors to create an open plan kitchen/diner/play area for the family, and added a handsome deVOL shaker kitchen.

We were able to adapt the space to create a welcoming and inviting environment with a few simple changes. Having removed the large circular table and benches, the circular area was filled with an off-cut of faux grass (found on ebay) which freed up the space. The grey brick wall has been covered with wooden feather board cladding and trellising which has been painted in a stone colour and a variety of new and colourful plants and small trees have been introduced to soften the look. The addition of the mirror on the right side, reflects light and gives the illusion of extra space.

North Leeds Garden Design
We transformed our client's compact urban garden into a thriving space for her (and her cute cats!) to enjoy. Chunky, modern raised beds not only provide lots of room for her to explore her passion for growing vegetables, flowers and fruit, but offere informal seating when friends and family visit. There is now a proper patio just where you want it for a sunny eating area - by the house. We included a lawn as our client wanted to enjoy the scent and feel of grass on a summers day. And we also found room for the essential shed - screened from the house by cordoned fruit trees set within tensioned wires. A greenhouse in a sunny spot is just right for growing tomatoes and peppers. New fencing smartened up the boundaries and we then added climbing plants including roses for scent and clematis to brighten up a spring or summer day.

SCJ Studio Landscape Architecture
In Seattle's Fremont neighborhood SCJ Studio designed a new landscape to surround and set off a contemporary home by Coates Design Architects. The narrow spaces around the tall home needed structure and organization, and a thoughtful approach to layout and space programming. A concrete patio was installed with a Paloform Bento gas fire feature surrounded by lush, northwest planting. A horizontal board cedar fence provides privacy from the street and creates the cozy feeling of an outdoor room among the trees. LED low-voltage lighting by Kichler Lighting adds night-time warmth .
