Planting design and horticulture are at the heart of our practice. We aim to celebrate and deliver the multisensory & functional benefits of plants; whether in a private garden, healthcare, horticulture therapy, school setting, or as part of a wider public space.
The qualities of place that people most appreciate at the human scale; that which we touch, move across or sit on. Westley Design produces original detailing and furnishing design, in collaboration with artists and makers to meet the client’s needs with flair and imagination.
