Vauxhall garden


A city courtyard garden in Vauxhall, London. Designed to be a haven from city life and a refuge for wildlife. 

A garden for humans and wildlife alike

The brief for this small courtyard garden was to create a space which was both welcoming to wildlife and an entertainment/relaxation space for the client. We divided the space into two main zones, a cooking/dining area, and a more casual fire pit space.  

The space had a slightly industrial feel which we wanted to build on using materials which had a weathered patina, such as the oak sleepers and steel mesh for the climbers. We also used plants that would creep between spaces and give a slightly wild feel. Trees and plants were chosen which provided nectar-rich flowers and berries both for year-round interest and to attract wildlife. 

I collaborated on this design with Joana Rzepa.
