Elevated Garden


Design Brief

A safe place for the family over three terraces, with distinct areas to relax, entertain and play, with a specific requirement to increase light levels into the back of the house.

The Challenge

A steeply sloping site with 5m high terraces reached by rotting wooden stairs, with an existing 2.5m high wall blocking out light from the house, and no rear garden access.

The Design Solution

The walls of the first terrace are pushed back and staircases created on either side leading up to the next terrace, designed as an entertaining space. A cantilevered walkway provides access up the five-metre wall to the final terrace, which provides a safe play area for children.
