Pierhouse

                        When asked to design the outdoor spaces for this stunning 14,500 square foot waterfront property by Niamh Butler Architects, Andrew’s approach was to keep things simple and uncluttered thus showing off the lines of the architecture without competing with either the building or the views that surround it. The result was a series of contemporary terraces and courtyards that included three bespoke outdoor gas fires, a formal minimalist water feature stunning, mature olive trees and much more.

 

  The property also had a barbeque room that could be opened out onto the master terrace. Here Andrew designed an outdoor kitchen with built-in barbeque, sink and wine cooler. Bespoke commissions for everything from the pearl white granite paving and cobble courtyard to the stunning David Harber ‘Dark Planet’ sculpture were all undertaken by Andrew Christopher garden designs to help play our part in this impressive property.
