Kingston Maurward The Space Within Garden

Sanctuary Gardens
A contemporary arch provides the entrance to a secret jungle of foliage planting inspired by the sub-tropical gardens of the Mediterranean and punctuated by specimen architectural plants and trees.

Elevated pathways lead to a daybed platform where the visitor can rest, totally immersed in plants. The asymmetric social platform and seating is inspired by childhood den making and invites the visitor with its playful shape.

The sanctuary boundaries are created as wildlife habitats, using fallen trees and waste timber to contain the space within.
