Receiving this award is a great recognition of the hard work and craftsmanship that went into the construction of this very challenging project.
This project was part of a major restoration of a Lutyens house in Hascombe, Surrey. Designed by architects, Michael & Frances Edwards.
The craftsmanship is exemplary and the G. Jekyll landscape has been re-located and extended in immaculate condition. Using clay slips and brick on edge with committed planting, the garden is magnificent. Some features such as the fountain have been recreated from unrealised Lutyens designs, other elements such as the summer house are current designs but sympathetic.
The brick-terrace colonnade links the house and the garden with a strong formal axis which creates a truly beautiful space.
The location on a promontory with the valleys below, adds to the special nature of this formal garden. Strong lines of symmetry and reworking of the original plans. A superb piece of work.
