Norfolk garden

Located 500 yards from the beach, this garden contrasts two enclosed garden spaces with a wild and natural garden between the house and the fields that stretch to the sea.

The enclosed gardens draw on the pattern of landscape, the ditches, reeds, salt marshes and beach debris to make spaces that are spatially separate from the context but thematically connected to it. The garden articulates thoughts about attachment to the home and hearth and separation from it. The main construction materials in the garden are corten steel, stone and timber. The House was restored and extended by Ptolemy Dean Architects.
