FIRST TOUCH
gARDEN

The Neonatal Unit at St George's Hospital London and the support it receives from the charity First Touch are the inspiration behind this design. The garden has an imaginative concept inspired by cells, the building blocks of life, and reminds us that all life starts from extremely small beginnings. The theme of the garden is growth and the developmental process of living things. The planting and other elements reflect the underlying themes of growth and transition, with similar forms featured in a range of sizes. Water plays a significant part in the design in the form of circular, reflective pools.
