The decked area was enclosed by a softwood timber pergola. This was half-roofed with timber joists onto which blue Perspex panels were fixed. Suspended from the pergola frame is the main feature of the garden – a large, deep, timber swing seat ready for the client to dress with an array of cushions, mattresses and throws.
Aluminium chain curtains hang down either side of the pergola structure to add definition and help to create the illusion of ‘a room in the garden’, a theme re-enforced by three globe lights hanging from the pergola cross beam. Along the left side of the back wall three 90cm high illuminated planters featuring box balls add day- and night-time interest to the space. This was mirrored on the right side of the back boundary with three non-illuminated white fibreglass planters. The left hand planters were framed by three 3 outdoor canvas fixed to the wall (200cm x 40cm), whilst the right hand planters benefit from a backdrop of backlit blue Perspex panels.
