This project involved the design and build of a large front gravel driveway and a large back garden attached to a new traditionally built family house in South Dublin.
The client expressed an interest in modernist Italian garden design and wanted their new garden to reflect this while still remaining a family garden. With a love of modern sculpture, the client’s brief also called for a modern and understated garden sculpture to be the focal point of the garden. An abstract bronze bespoke piece by the Irish sculptor Mark Ryan (Kildare Gallery) was chosen as a key element of the geometric garden design. The modern garden sculpture was mounted on a plinth in front of a feature wall constructed from Irish blue Kilkenny limestone.
