Bloom 2017 Large Garden - Savills Urban Retreat

Savills Urban Retreat

‘Savills’ Urban Retreat’ will be an elegant and contemporary garden using mostly cuboid architectural forms. This garden, in terms of its size, is reflective of the vast majority of outdoor spaces found in modern, urban residential properties.
It was designed to address the twin challenges of space and privacy and to show how a stunning, green retreat can be created despite these restraints. The garden will not only be beautiful but also functional, with two central entertaining spaces available for use: the open terrace and the partially covered sunken snug. The variety of materials used will be minimal and carefully selected, and the color palette will be simple, natural and relaxing. The planting will be a mixture of formal green blocks and informal shaded beds.
