The Garden of the Beasts at Hampton Court Palace
In September 2011 we were part of a team led by Davies White Landscape Architects that were chosen from over 200 design teams by The Historic Royal Palaces to develop design proposals for a new £1.5 million children’s garden at Hampton Court Palace.
Also part of the team were leading arts charity, The House of Fairy Tales, RHS Gold garden designer Dan Lobb and RIBA Architect James Bennett. We are delighted to announce that our project ‘The Garden of the Beasts’ was selected as a project finalist. The entry included fully illustrated proposals, an animated film (by us with narrative by The House of Fairy Tales and illustrations from Josh Knowles, Nikki Pinder and Lesley Barnes), an interactive game (by House of Fairy Tales) and a merchandising range
Above is a short conceptual animation that brings to life the story of Bess; a young Elizabeth I, discovering a secret garden created from her daydreams by the King’s Beasts that reside all around the Palace and its grounds.
To see more of the proposals visit our Garden of the Beasts portfolio page on the project.
