The Pot Company was pleased to hear one of their customers, David Keegan, was awarded the Best Residential Landscape Design Award 2016 at the Northern Design Awards for his project featuring their Corten Steel Cado Cylinders. David supplied the company with some beautiful images shortly after the project was completed, so The Pot Company were not surprised to hear that the garden went on to win an award.
David said of this project: "A big part of my vision in setting out to design this garden was to truly create a connection between the inside and outside spaces, but as a garden distinct from a living room, the aim of which to create the sense of being immersed in the garden even when seated inside.
"In setting out to achieve this I deliberately set out not to follow the fashion of extending the inside out, but instead, a separate space of nature that, although had a connection to the inside, its flow would be complimentary, rather than continuous. In so doing, whilst the two spaces coexist and connect, they offer a very distinct set of moods and consequentially, emotional responses.
"The end result when you are seated inside the house and looking upon the garden acts as a calming backdrop and picture. As distinct to when you sit in the garden, you are immersed and escape the connection, and its confines, of what we call house, home and room. In that way the garden becomes a distinct, but complimentary, separate space."
