Shawford Park

for private clients,
2006 -

Carolean house set between two arms of the River Itchen. The formal gardens have been redesigned using sevententh-century features in a fresh approach. New ramparts, a bastion and a walled potager combine with modern sculpture to form a distinct garden edge

Beyond the garden fortifications, a contemporary interpretation of water meadows, with sinuous channels curving between a quilted landscape of wildflowers, has replaced a gang-mown polo pitch and helipad.
