HIGHBURY GARDENS, ISLINGTON

markhantonStudio were appointed to provide RIBA work stages A-L (inception to completion), for a landscaped courtyard centered within a  119, one, two and three bedroom mixed-use scheme designed by architects, Porphyrios Associates.

The courtyard provides a private sanctuary for residents with: mature, tree, hedge and native boundary shrub planting providing year round interest and wildlife attracting features; benches, lawns and fragranced flowering shrubs lie within the enclosed space of the courtyard and provide places to play or sit and relax in a beautiful garden setting.  A wisteria covered pergola has been incorporated with a table and bench seating, giving residents the opportunity to share a picnic with family and friends in their own garden setting.  

The scheme was completed in late 2010.
