This month in our fire pit feature project we have Marlene Lento Design Studio. Marlene designs gardens in Kent and East Sussex. Her designs range from traditional to contemporary with an emphasis on creating outdoor living spaces that are usable and beautiful throughout the seasons:
“There is really nothing that you can’t do outside, even in our UK climate”
We are focussing on a recent project that Marlene undertook for a client in Otford, Kent. When discussing the client brief with Marlene it was simply to design a spectacular entertainment area at the top of their steep garden overlooking the Kent countryside. Looking at the end result she certainly fulfilled the brief and more! A garden of this nature needs the help of a designer to realise its true potential and really give it the wow factor, which Marlene has definitely done with her design.
In order to fulfil the brief Marlene designed two circular decks that are set into the slope, one of which is a lounge area and the other a dance floor! The centre piece of the lounge area is a large Solus fire bowl which is surrounded by cosy upholstered outdoor furniture. A cantilevered heater adds further warmth making it a year-round destination. The elaborate lighting scheme and mature planting, some of which were helicoptered into the garden create real impact and luxury within this Kent garden.
Marlene has incorporated our Hemi fire bowl with gas connection and drinks ring. The gas pipework has been carefully concealed beneath the decking; a key part of the planning process and something that we are on hand to help with along with any technical questions.
We are thrilled to be a part of this fantastic garden transformation. Get in touch with Marlene Lento Design Studio to see how she can help with your garden project.
