Security and privacy in an urban environment


With this recent project in Notting Hill you can see how our contemporary slatted panels add ultimate privacy and create a more desirable living area for an urban city garden.

What did the client want?

The client is a young professional who bought the ground floor flat which had a small rear garden with low perimeter walls and was severely overlooked. 
The idea for our design was to create an attractive but very functional boundary. It was vital that we created a decent amount of screening with a prominent level of security, all without the panels becoming too dominating.

How did we make the project successful?

With an initial outline quotation for the project agreed, we met the client and their designer on site to discuss the new project and carry out a site survey. From the survey our design team provided CAD drawings to showcase the scheme for the client, along with a final quotation. With everything agreed our craftsmen prepared the panels to order in our workshop ready for the fitting teams to install. The project was completed within the given timescale. 

What were the main challenges to overcome?

The three walls that were having panels fixed to them were different heights and we also had to cut the fence on-site to fit around wall columns and existing storage units. Another challenge was that the only access to the garden was through the flat, therefore we had to arrange to use a neighbour’s garden to get some materials on-site. These issues made the process slightly longer but we still managed to complete installation within the two days.

What products were featured in the finished design?

The products featured were Western Red Cedar contemporary slatted panels with a 45mm slat and a 10mm gap fixed to the front face of a brick wall.
We are very pleased with the outcome of this project, we think it provides an appropriate level of security, adds character, interest and colour to the garden.
