This beautiful courtyard garden only came to life as a result of my clients want and need for a private and stylish outdoor space to complement their already spectacular top floor apartment. A large conservatory room was halved in size to accommodate the new outdoor space. The old roof was moved across, the floor was waterproofed, and all old interior walls were made weather tight and finished in an acrylic render.
As almost everything on this job was bespoke all elements had to be carefully measured up on site and fabricated elsewhere.
Containers were manufactured in Somerset. Made from 3mm mild steel, they are as robust as they are beautiful. Sprayed in an Anthracite RAL7016 they give a wonderful contrast to the light coloured tiles.
The tiles themselves are porcelain and the colour is a Travertine Ivory. They are incredibly strong, hard wearing and stain resistant. The tiles have been laid on a raised plastic support system which allows for the drainage of water underneath and as not to interfere with the apartment below.
The hardwood trellis was made in Celbridge, sprayed in Wicklow and the mirrors were installed on site by our team. As it’s a completely enclosed space the mirrors add a real depth and give the illusion of a bigger space while also reflecting the many plants and their foliage.
