Fenton House, London (2015)

Investigation into the recent history of the garden at Fenton House in Hampstead Heath, London. The National Trust took on the property with a garden that had never been designed – it served as a vegetable garden and tennis court. A decision was made in the early 1970’s to create a garden ‘that felt right’ (Graham Stuart Thomas – National Trust). The garden was created using historical references and in discussion with leading experts. DCLA concluded that the garden is a very good example of ‘re-creation’ and interpretation and should be celebrated as such.
