Sometimes a client does not want a complete design but rather an idea for a space without wanting too much detail, so that they can put their own mark on it. This was the case with this project. The client was carrying out extensive work on the house, and the existing farmyard was to become a garden, but he needed some help and an outline plan.
Although this is not the most satisfying way to work from a designers point of view, the client may not want a full blown design and planting plan, whether this is from a cost point of view or that they simply want to interpret it in their own way. This was the case here, so I put together a masterplan as to how the space could be broken up and used after taking the brief from the client. I have to say I enjoy seeing through a project from concept to completion, but this does not work for everyone and I am happy to work in this way should the client require it. As the saying goes ‘its horses for courses’.
