RHS Tatton 2021

The rehearse garden is inspired by rhythmic qualities being used in outdoor spaces. A circular, meandering route around the space allows for repetition whilst protruding vents and walls break the organic form of the planted beds. copper clad water features bring natural sound to the garden and three windows in each wall act as a structural repeated form. the garden is imagined as a classical musicians front garden. An entry to a private house and studio. tuning of instruments and layers of practiced musical pieces will be heard when sitting in the space. each element in the garden is placed to reflect these sounds in a visual form to create a balanced, calming garden.

Shooting Star

Shooting Star Children's Hospices supports babies, children and young people living with life-limiting conditions and their families, across London and Surrey. Thanks to medical advances children with life-limiting conditions are living longer and the help they need is increasingly complex. We help families make every moment count by supporting them from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional and medical care. Our bespoke support is free of charge to families and includes a comprehensive range of therapies and support groups for the whole family, specialist nursing care and respite, symptom management, end-of-life care and bereavement support. 

We have two purpose-built hospices, Christopher’s in Guildford, Surrey and Shooting Star House in Hampton, South-West London, offering the very best in specialist facilities and equipment in a comfortable and homely environment. Our main gardens have specially adapted play equipment and sensory trails, providing a safe and relaxing place to play, with our Memory gardens providing a place of solace and comfort to sit and reflect.
