This is one of my favourite projects as it shows what can be done in a small space of just 20m2. The owner was happy to make bold choices, asking for natural earthy textures and tones using a variety of outdoor tiles, corten steel cladding and Western red cedar wood for seating.

This wonderfully secluded garden in an artists enclave in Camden, might be bijou, but we have managed to fit in a bespoke outdoor fireplace with an environmentally friendly bio-ethanol fire, raised planting beds to bring plants up to eye level and two seated areas; one for dining with an infra red overhead heater and a relaxation bench seat after a hard days work!
