The owners of Beechmont Hall in Sevenoaks wanted to transform an unloved space. Slate Grey created a contemporary lower terrace, existing walls were faced with Gabion cages filled with locally sourced Kentish ragstone, areas were then topped with hard decking creating access and seating around the wood fired hot tub. Horsham stone was used to create single piece step treads leading from the terrace above. The hard landscaping was complemented witha Mediterranean planting palette.

Slate Grey Design collaborated with esteemed local designer Victoria Chesterfield who was thrilled with the outcome.

Managing Director Richard Ayles said:

It is a great honour to be recognised in this way by apanel of the industry’s leading experts.Both awards really are testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire team.
