Intimacy and grandeur

The grandest of buildings, here a Robert Adam greenhouse, can be married with planting that is both witty and informal. 

The use of asymmetric island borders positioned directly in front of the greenhouse without any direct route to or focus on the building makes the composition much more intimate. 

The use of Verbascum olympicum in the planting scheme adds a modern twist to the overall scheme and suggests that we shouldn't take things too seriously.
