The Savills garden

'FACE 2 FACE'

 

Face to face is a garden concept that aims to reconnect us with our environment and each other, all within the confines and comfort of our own homes. With the ever changing landscape of the social media age, interactions between people and our environment has all too often become a series of text and images which we ‘Like’, share, post and retweet.  Where we believe we are more connected than ever, in reality the opposite is true.  In place of real interactions and engagements on a human level, we have succumbed to the ease of virtual connections and interactions which are often just a shadow of the real thing.  It was awarded a gold medal at the prestigious Bloom flower show in Dublin's Phoeynix Park
