The St George ‘Alright Here’ Balcony Garden

Balcony Gardens

Inspired by daily city life, the garden is designed for a young professional in London, providing somewhere to sit with an after-work drink or a morning cup of coffee. The garden aims to create a relaxing but playful atmosphere, reminiscent of a good local pub – familiar, comforting, characterful.
The space is divided into different areas to sit, surrounded by plants that are multi-functional, being fragrant, edible or good for cutting. The colour scheme includes citrusy tones of green and orange, contrasting with rich dark pinks and pale blue – making the space feel fresh and uplifting.
The garden promotes a message of waste reduction, using repurposed rubbish bins as containers and benches made from reclaimed railway sleepers. The wall tiles, made from recycled Welsh slate, are installed using a silicone adhesive to ensure that they can be removed and reused after the show.
