The garden design responds to views out from the new garden room and extends the living space outdoors by means of a granite terrace adjacent to the building and a timber deck in a remote sunny corner.

The important garden boundaries have been reformed using a combination of timber screens and a 2 meter high slate filled gabion wall/seat.

The design creates two new spaces; a granite paved patio extending the garden room level into the garden, this is enclosed with a slate filled gabion basket and larch screen and new steel and timber bench; the second space is an elevated timber deck situated in the sunniest corner of the garden. The gabion wall, a grouping of bamboo and a water sculpture are lit at night.

Construction by Scottish Landscape Architects – SpaceLab of Edinburgh

City Design are designing a poetry garden in St. Andrews which will contain a new poetry centre designed by Malcolm Fraser Architects. The garden design will transform a long rig, once a botanical garden into a quiet public space close to the university.

City Design Co-operative are working with MFA on the redesign of the east and west gardens and the external terraces of the HBOS Headquarters on the Mound in Edinburgh. Exploratory works to map and record the root locations of important trees is currently being carried out to avoid damage during construction works.
