 Family Garden -  Dublin 7

 Client brief:

The client travels frequently to Japan for work and is influenced by their aesthetic sense and design sensibility. The  Japanese language famously has a word for every feeling, and the sense (feeling, atmosphere etc) we're looking for in our garden is きょうき (Ky ōki) “pleasant / calm surprise in symphony with surroundings”. 

There were also practical considerations, namely to incorporate a garden shed and play centre for  their young children.

Garden Features:

  • Bonsai pine & wall feature
