Client's Brief

Halstead, Essex

Sun was a key factor in the brief for this new build property garden. Different areas throughout the day were required for sunbathing, together with a multi-level decked area with pergola and seating area. A large lawn and screening of all fences and garage side walls were also required. An outdoor kitchen to be built at a later stage will be linked to a dedicated dining area.

For this project, a 3D model of the space and surrounding properties was created to track the sun’s path at various times throughout the day. This modelling was used to determine the various seating area positions in the design. The complicated curved multi-level deck area provides different zones for sunbathing and sitting combining both a sunken and raised planting bed.
