The Café Garden by Dairmuid Gavin

By Diarmuid Gavin. The Café Garden is a place for people to stop, sit, relax and to immerse themselves in the atmosphere; it is a haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The garden opens to a clearing to reveal an open wooden pavilion with slatted wood sections for shading visitors. Inspired by a set of 1940s-style French mesh work chairs, outsized, stainless steel daisies are the centre of drama in the garden.

The daisies burst out of the ground and tower above the garden, set at varying heights among rich planting and a deep green jungle of foliage.

Tables and chairs with leafy parasols are interspaced within the planted areas.

Beyond the café, there is a forest of lollipop Catalpa trees and daisies, a dreamy backdrop to complete the scene. Pathways link the seating area
