for the harbour Quarter
The future inhabitants of the Harbour Quarter joined us to discuss their ambitions and plans for the new courtyard garden. Although busy organising the construction of their new homes ( self-build urban plan) there was a high turn out with more 30 people turning up to actively get involved with the design. Using a model, references and sketches the new garden is designed with a large lawn area for recreation, a butterfly garden, fruit trees and herb gardens in planters to be maintained by the inhabitants themselves as well as a meeting point under a big walnut tree with tables and a barbeque. A raised fringe of cut granite slabs forms the sitting element which borders a multifunctional gritted area for playing and general activity.
