This project allowed Luciano to explore the integration of architecture, interior and garden in a major way for the first time – themes that he has consistently returned to in every subsequent project.
Originally an awkward and angular site, the garden was carefully carved into a series of different entertaining and green spaces. A generous terrace with full-width Portland Stone steps was created. Lines of trees allow for privacy while still making the space feel open. Yew cubes running the length of the garden provide the signature interplay of light and shade. The front garden was also designed by Luciano as a prelude to the composition in the back.
