St Margaret's The Barley Sugar Garden

The aim was to create a space that was warm and inviting and that contributed to the wellness of the school community, by providing a place of repose where students could escape from the pressures & anxieties of everyday school life. Central to the design is the Barley Sugar Arbour, a long sinuous walkway shaded by a vine covered pergola. Tree shaded café style table & chair seating nooks, cool inviting lawn areas and the dry stacked sandstone walls of the Spiral Garden provide relaxed and informal places for students to gather and chat. A miniature putting green affords a simple fun play activity.
