Walled Garden - the colour palette

Walled Garden - the colour palette

Walled Gardens are colourful spaces with stone, brick and structures constrasting with the planting and landscape.  This month we've been deciding on the final colours for the Pavilion.

 

10.10.2014

Deciding on the colours for the Pavilion has been an interesting challange, mainly because of the 'moveable' nature of colour within the walled garden. 

As a case in point we had previously decided on a colour for the floor finish.  However, once we had taken this into the Pavilion (now the structure has been constructed) it clearly would not work, both when the sun was out and on more gloomy days!  So we went back to the colour selection... 

The internal decoration must look good whilst supporting the objectives of the building and be practical to use for learning!

We are getting there and the colour palette for the building will be practical and beautiful!

The photograph shows a mixture of the colours selected for different internal surfaces within the Pavilion.
