Before & After: Berkeley Square Hotel, Bristol, England


Adjacent the the Berkeley Square hotel in Bristol England was an “embarrassingly dirty and uncared for area”.  Designer Katherine Edmonds changed that and created an oasis in the heart of the city.  What once as a car park is now an eclectic garden space that the hotel can use to host parties and events.

From the designer:

“The large garden has been divided into a number of smaller more intimate dining areas. There are places to sit in the sun and covered areas for times when the elements aren’t so kind. The chunky, green-oak furniture was made on-site and will last a lifetime, gaining character as it ages.

Bespoke features include the handmade glass table inset, which was designed and made by local Easton artist Milly Francis and, along with the wall art and the furniture, it adds an individual touch to the garden.”


What do you think of this funky space?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
