We work with clients to transform their outdoor space into an additional living area for the home, designing gardens and understanding client’s requirements to create a garden design that is a unique to them. This is when many ideas for garden products were born, often as a focal point such as water features, natural swimming pools, furniture, garden kitchens and wood fired ovens, all designed to complement and enhance the garden and the experience of the user. Many design ideas are inspired from the materials that surround us especially materials like stone, wood, crushed stone aggregates and sheet metals like copper and lead etc.
Recently the development of the ovens has taken over Ben’s interest as the wood fired oven (bread oven) is one of the simplest and effective ways of cooking and enjoying food outside - the primal instinct to cook on an open fire has inspired the design and build outdoor cooking spaces and ovens. Ben originally designed the insulated off the shelf oven Bb70 in 2009 and since then has also designed and built a number of large mobile ovens for farmers markets.
