architect: Victoria Wade Landscapes of Penarth
clay pavers: Pearl Grey
The brief given to Victoria Wade Landscapes of Penarth, Cardiff was to create an elegant 'outdoor living room' for her client.
This small back garden in Pontcanna, Cardiff was designed to create a seamless transition between inside and out, and provide an extension of the client’s living space.
A subtle mix of traditional materials and cottage garden planting was married with a contemporary, minimalist aesthetic which mirrored the mix of old and new found in the client’s Victorian terrace house with modern extension.
Vande Moortel's Ancienne Belgique Pearl Grey natural clay pavers were used for both the hard surfaces and the walls of the raised beds and built in seating area, which were topped with polished grey sandstone.
