Antithesis of Sarcophagi – Best Fresh Garden Chelsea Flower Show 2016. With Martin Cook

Type: Architectural, Awards, Featured, For Sale, Garden / landscape design Completed:

" of the most uplifting things that I have ever seen at Chelsea" - Monty Don

Sponsored by the Marble and Granite Centre Ltd and designed and made in collaboration with Martin Cook, Antithesis of Sarcophagi represents a world turned inside out; a garden inside a sculpture; desolation versus life; civilisation versus nature. A forty-four tonne rough granite cube, one face painted with a mysterious inscription, contains a rejuvenating woodland; only visible from the stark, ash-charred exterior through small fissures in its surface.

The planting was done with great sensitivity and precision by 7 times RHS medal winner Chris Holland.

Of the Antithesis of Sarcophagi Monty Don said, “The combination of the stone and the garden hidden inside it creates one of the most uplifting things that I have ever seen at Chelsea”
