Angus Thompson Design

Angus Thompson established his own landscape design practice following his studies at the internationally renowned Inchbald School of Design, where he received the Principals Award. The practice has developed a reputation for excellence and quality of design, collaborating closely with architects, interior designers, and contractors in order to offer clients a seamless experience from initial concept to completed landscape.

They have designed show gardens including the Gold Medal winning ‘Nature Ascending’ garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2009, and ‘Lust for Life’ in Chelsea 2007. Their design ethos is to search for the purest response to each site, client & brief. Their planting style tends towards the layering of dynamic, natural planting communities to juxtapose with the underlying design structure. This is matched with a belief in ‘right plant, right place’ and, wherever possible, adopting sustainable solutions.

The practice has an uncluttered approach; best described as ‘quietly contemporary’ and explore natural materials, aged patinas and textural contrasts within a modern aesthetic. Angus Thompson’s aim is to create gardens that look beautiful, but which also encourage exploration, play or quiet repose.

The Modern House Says
"Angus Thompson's gardens have a wonderful ability to soften the hard edges of contemporary architecture."
