SEED FREEDOM DOES GARDEN DESIGN: PUBLIC ST GEORGE'S CHURCH BLOOMSBURY LONDON
LOCATION: BLOOMSBURY LONDON CLIENT: ST GEORGE'S CHURCH
BRIEF: To create a colourful addition to the courtyard, that would encourage wildlife and inspire the local groups to partake in some gardening. To provide enjoyment and access to an otherwise dissused part of the church for the members of staff and visitors to the church to enjoy for ceremonies and events happening in the church as well as for day to day visits from members of the public. To create a design that was 'in keeping ' with the Baroque architecture of the building. To work with a very small budget.
PROCESS: After a lot of research in to the history and also the public realm of legislations and regulations e.g health and safety, means of access, listed and protected walls, steps, flagstones, and considering the design possiblities for the very uneaven level of the courtyard. A survey was done to measure the space and determine the design possibilities wihin that space. Once the survey had been drawn up and the preliminary drawings and ideas agreed apon by the client the design process began.
PRELIMINARY: Preliminary ideas were drawings produced along with ideas for planters and plants which represented the Baroque period.it was decided that a mini garden would be positioned in the centre of the courtyard leaving enough space for wheelchair access to circulate around the space freely. The mini garden was inspired by the beautiful colours and geometric shapes of the stained glass windows in the church that overlooked the courtyard. Plants were chosen that represented a parterre garden which was typical of the Baroque period in garden design.
