A series of new screens are placed within an existing mews house. A garage door is replaced with a planted screen to make a window onto the lane for a new kitchen. Sliding doors are replaced with a bespoke window which looks up towards the mature trees beyond. A small utility shed in the rear garden is faced in mirror to double the planting to the small town garden.
