ATHLONE HOUSE, HAMPSTEAD.
Natasha led the landscape design for this historic house which overlooks Hampstead Heath whilst at JFA. The proposals involved the design of several landscape features such as an entrance forecourt, terrace, potage and lily pond as well of restoration of the existing par terre, fruit terrace and woodland gardens. The garden design was highly praised by the London borough of Camden and as such contributed to a successful planning application.
PRIVATE GARDEN, DUBAI, UAE.
The garden forms an important entry area to a newly built villa for a private client in Dubai. Water features create a sense of tranquility and playfulness with the use of dancing fountains. A reflective pool surrounding the outdoor library gives the impression of building which floats on water. Lush green planting in combination with smooth, light grey granite paving create a refreshing and striking environment. The use of tensile shade structures create comfortable places to sit whilst also creating a nautical theme.

Raised planters were proposed in order to encourage the growing of vegetables and herbs.
