Totteridge II - North London

On this 2.5 acre plot on Totteridge Common looking south over rolling countryside towards London, a new five bedroom, pavilion style home and studio has been built for a contemporary artist client.

Designed to replace an existing property, the site already featured many mature plants and trees. We have built upon this by adding further indigenous tree species and planting an orchard within a wild flower Meadow that we have created within the extensive south facing landscape.

Around the new home and studio, we have chosen to plant swathes of summer flowering perennials and ornamental grasses in an almost Prairie style while also creating a potager garden, while working around various other plants the client has brought with them.
