What a brilliant composition of steel bars and earth. This is the garden shed belonging to a private residence in Edinburgh. The functional domain of the garden has become a garden sculpture.
The designers have drawn on the traditional basket or willow fence weave to create a building form that is almost fluid but with reinforcing bars. Morphing with the ground plane and the garden bed edging the normally rigid steel bars have a flexible appearance. Various patterns are created with the light and contrasting landscaping materials to create a very unique garden shed.
It is part of a wider garden design created by Water Gems who are landscape water specialists. They won the 2009 British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) Grand Award for this design.
