RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015 Show Garden - Gold - The Brewin Dolphin Garden

The Brewin Dolphin Garden

  • GoldGold

This unique garden features more than 40,000 pieces of hand-cut slate that form the surface of the suspended platforms. These platforms hover above ferns, AquilegaDicentra and other woodland edge plants, highlighting the fragility of fresh summer growth. The garden forms are inspired by prehistoric dolmens and quoits as well as modernist architecture, referencing renowned sculptors such as James Turell and Richard Serra.

The garden features an underground stream that is glimpsed through well openings, one of which is illuminated by sunlight shining through a hole in the platform above. The layers of history in the garden and modern approach draw parallels with Brewin Dolphin's history and heritage and its forward-thinking approach to business.
