A Social Garden


A place to entertain

This garden in Chattisham near Ipswich is attached to a guest house. The plan was to use the garden when friends came to visit, so the brief was all about entertainment. An external kitchen was not required as the house was open plan with bi-folding doors allowing for a seamless internal/external connection. Specific requests included a hot tub and large seating area.

The garden was relatively small and narrowed at one end. Due to requirements for a number of people to be able to enjoy it, dividing the space had to be done so that it would feel spacious enough no matter where they were congregating. There is a relaxed seating area in addition to a more formal dining area and loungers by the hot tub.

Furthermore, there is a courtyard style entrance should the garden be used for larger gatherings and parties with the raised planters allowing for guests to perch on these if required.

Key Features:

  • Sunken seating area
  • Cantilevered bench
  • Hot Tub
  • Fire Pit
