Chelsea Flower Show Centenary 2013

Sky Pavilion


The garden for the Centenary at Chelsea Flower Show was designed around HRH Prince Harry’s charity that he set up to support children living with HIV in Lesotho. Lesotho is known as the Sky Kingdom as it sits high up on a plateau in the Drakensberg Mountains. The pavilion is an interpretation of the typical rondavel houses of that country. In Lesotho everything is built by hand of sticks, mud and straw. Here we build everything technologically so we chose birch ply and laser cut the technical timber into this pavilion that embraces the sky.
