The use of flowers and natural elements is a reoccurring theme in my work. Specifically for the Chelsea Barracks project, it seemed appropriate to have this site which is right next to the grounds where the Chelsea Flower Show is hosted every year.
The combination of flowers is different for each house so each house is unique. We created a number of flowers; large ones, small ones, but they are all common flowers in Britain.
I’m keen to bring organic-ness into my work but there’s also the skill of finding a balance between that world of organic nature and the geometry of the house.
I like to bring something natural back to our cities which then links the houses to the outside world.
