Landscape design and construction, Perranporth, Cornwall< Back to Projects
A blank canvas of an empty field, high on a hill above the north coast in the grounds of a contemporary glass fronted home. The brief was to design and build a sheltered terrace from the wind that would also provide an aesthetic feature from the elevated position of the house. The shelter was created installing treated timber sleepers in an elliptical spiral formation which also supported a raised bed for a shelter belt of beech trees. The surfacing was laid with reclaimed materials such as slate slabs, pebbles and engineering bricks. The sweeping path is made of waste crushed slate from near Delebole and reflects the light of the converging sea and sky.
