Outdoor space and especially gardens that are in constant change, lend them selves to a creative personal touch. All sorts of structures may be envisaged to provide shade or covered space or climbing frames for plants. Sculptures, providing focal points and furniture of infinite variety, must stand up to prolonged periods of exposure to the elements. Iron is the ideal material for this kind of work. I like to work hand in hand as far as possible with my clients in the concept stages of these satisfying projects.

These structures create outdoor rooms enlarging the house and giving shade when vegetation has grown over them.
The pergola marries well with this modern architecture. Even during the building stages one can see how this structure dresses up the terrasse.

Stairs leading up to a raised iron terrace with chestnut wood deking.
