WEYMOUTH MEWS

with Morrow + Lorriane Architects

for the Howard de Walden Estate

Laura Stone - Director; Tatyana Larikova - Senior Landscape Architect

A redevelopment to accommodate five new apartments within a mews building, this scheme is in a Conservation area and surrounded by listed buildings. Livingston Eyre Associates were appointed to design a courtyard and various roof gardens for the new scheme.

The scheme is essentially a modern one, reflecting the architecture, but contains references to Georgian gardens as a link to Asia House, a fine 18th Century townhouse on New Cavendish Street that backs on to the mews.

The first floor roof garden and terrace are bounded by a strip of semi-intensive planting, including upright juniper in varying sizes, evoking a typical informal Georgian style.

At second floor level semi-intensive planting of two heights is used to create a miniature landscape with a defined vista, seen only from certain points, focussed on a stylised ‘temple’ of bug boxes.

Planning approved 2016, due to complete 2018
