ALCI winner 2019

Best Private Garden Over €100k

City Escape

It is hard to believe that this tranquil, secluded, private garden is Located just minutes from the heart of Dublin city. The garden was long and narrow (60m x 12m) with the only access for construction being through part of the house and a door that was less than a meter wide. Undeterred by the challenges, the final garden featured a sunken garden with natural gas fireplace, polished concrete patios and dining area, custom made furniture in timber and polished concrete, Bespoke Corten steel wall screens and a large garden room with bi-fold doors and swing. A complete planting scheme was carefully designed to enhance the atmosphere of escapism within the garden. All images here were taken just one year after construction.
