Narrow garden in Rottingdean
This small cottage in Rottingdean has been modernised to a contemporary finsh with a definite statement of cream and black throughout. It was important for the space to have a seamless transition from the dining area through to the garden to create a natural extension of the home. This was partly achieved by continuing the colour palette of the interior to the outside. The owner is a very social person and is often hosting both for her friends and her childrens friends. The small space required multi-functional elements to maximise on the potential of the space whilst meeting functionality. the bench seats on the lower part are also storage units, whilst the retainer walls of the borders are at a height suitable for seating.
Given the aspect of this garden and its surrounding buildings, it allows the opportunity to host bold architectural plants that are suited to shaded spaces, including the fantastic Dicksonia Antartica, (A tree fern).
