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
