Practice

 

Oxford based landscape and garden design practice

 

Angus Thompson 3

 

Angus Thompson established his own practice following his studies at the internationally renowned Inchbald School of Design 2004, where he received the Principals Award.

As a practice we collaborate closely with architects, interior designers, and contractors in order to offer our clients a seamless experience from initial concept to completed landscape. We have designed show gardens including the Gold Medal winning 'Nature Ascending' garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2009, and 'Lust for Life' in Chelsea 2007.

Angus leads dynamic team, each with differing skills covering Planting, CAD, Illustration, Material sourcing, Maintenance and marketing/PR. We pride ourselves in being a small enough team to be ‘responsive' to client needs, yet with enough 'flex' to embrace the larger projects we are currently involved in.

Angus is a guest lecturer at the Inchbald School of Garden Design.

Design ethos

 

Our design ethos is to search for the purest response to each site, client & brief.

We adopt an uncluttered approach; best described as ‘quietly contemporary’ and explore natural materials, aged patinas and textural contrasts within a modern aesthetic.

Our aim is to create gardens that look beautiful, but which also encourage exploration, play or quiet repose.

Our planting style tends towards the layering of dynamic, natural planting communities to juxtapose with the underlying design structure. We believe in ‘right plant, right place’ and wherever possible adopt sustainable solutions.

“Always searching for the purest response to a site / brief…. uncluttered approach”
