Trebrae Manor Garden

Family garden design

The challenge

The client had the vision for taking a country house hotel in a lonely wood on the north Cornish coastal plateau and stripping away the layers to reveal a remarkable ancient Cornish manor house. Once discovered, the client has bravely counterpointed the historical with the contemporary in their architectural intervention in the hose. They had the same design requirement for the garden; a hill side of woodland to the rear of the manor, with a forecourt and paddocks to the north west and the distant coast. They wished to have a magical landscape for the whole family to explore and grow up with.

What we did

We developed the masterplan for Trebrae through meetings with the client and evolved the final design through exploring movement and visual strategies, art interventions, furnishing and hard landscape and planting.

The result

The design for Trebrae Manor garden combines a classical orthogonal structure with a contemporary language of form, materiality and planting. We look forward to developing and implementing this remarkable garden with the client in the future.
