THE SCHEMA GARDEN: homage to Charles Rennie Mackintosh

The over-arching landscape brief and design intent for this new build, Charles Rennie Mackintosh inspired house, is to co-join the house and its garden plus compliment the house architecture and lake views from it. Other features of this house design such as the balcony curve have been repeated with stone paths that cut through the family quadrangle space and lawns; and the Charles Rennie Mackintosh look grid windows (not shown in perspectives). These design repeats play a role in taking the house into the garden to seamlessly ground it in its landscape. Planned completion March 2019.
Project Year: 2018
Country: United Kingdom

Its geometry creates a dual purpose courtyard to the house. Hardened exotic planting takes advantage an enclosed micro-climate to echo t...More

A curved pathway follows the line of the terrace step-down. The planting borders themselves follow both the curve of the pathway and the house itself. They are edged in anthracite black-brown steel to further define their shape yet are softened by the planting. The border planting proximity to the house is key in co-joining it to its landscape and the wide lawn pathways encour...More

The family quadrangle is given intimacy through its 'puppy fencing' that wraps around the gym/boathouse to again repeata the Charles Rennie Mackintosh style; as does a cantilever glass walkway grid above (from kitchen to gym/boathouse). Family cosy al fresco dining is within easy reach of the kitchen. © drawings & design Jane Finlay
