Double gold for Chelsea Flower Show architects
Kengo Kuma and Chetwoods Architects have scooped gold medals for their respective stands at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show in London
Echoing the hue of its sponsor’s refreshments, the flowers are arranged to create a ‘flowing tapestry of colours’.
Chetwoods Architects’ ‘vertical allotment’ also won the RHS Gold medal as part of the B&Q show garden. Designed by Laurie Chetwood and Patrick Collins, the scheme is the third installation by the practice to win the medal.
The garden showcased different ways of growing food in urban settings.
Chetwoods’ display was opened by TV presented Lorraine Kelly. She said: ‘Encouraging more and more people to grow their own, whatever space they have, is good news for the health of the nation and our planet.’
