This elegant Grade-II listed Belgravia townhouse is undergoing a complete renovation. With a large garden at the back and an upper terrace, Cameron Gardens was tasked to create outside spaces that provide a stunning backdrop from within and also draw people in to them. The design concepts work closely to balance the original architectural features with the interior design and luxury of the finish.
The upper terrace is accessed via the first floor reception room and will act as an extension of the house, working with the interiors scheme so the transition between the internal and external will be seamless and create a natural ‘outdoor room’. As the focus is on relaxation and entertaining, there will be an informal seating area which doesn’t compromise on comfort or quality. Beautiful multi- stem trees in handmade planters will draw your eye though the space and add privacy and security.
The main garden will be divided into different ‘levels’, including a ‘secret garden’, so that the space is fully optimised – it is currently underused. The garden will be designed with an informal, naturalistic planting scheme and use contrasting forms of texture, foliage and colour, balanced with bold structural planting. This rich planting will provide stimulation and enhance the atmosphere. The boundary will be softened and disguised with trellising, mature climbers, evergreen planting and pleached trees for screening and greater privacy. Beautiful lighting will bring the garden alive by night from both inside and out.
