Hardscape Design Winner for Ann-Marie Powell at Society of Garden Designers Awards 2021

Ann-Marie Powell and the AMPG Studio are overjoyed to have been honoured with TWO awards at the Society of Garden Designers Awards 2021 for our work at the Cottonmill Spa at Sopwell House Hotel for International and UK Commercial Landscape & Garden and Hardscape Design.

“I wanted to create a commercial contemporary, classic garden which was detail and experience-driven, exemplary in its attention to detail, where our natural inspirations still shone through exuding character, warmth and soul. It was a challenging site – small, with level changes and root protection zones to consider amongst so many other practical build elements – I believe we made the space expansive and uplifting – a spa garden to step off the world, relax and unwind. We designed every element in the landscape, from water wall to rill, boundary, lighting, bridging details to furniture. I am extremely proud of what myself and my team achieved, and it is an honour to have years of hard work recognised by my industry peers.” says Ann-Marie on winning the hard-fought awards.

For more information on the AMPG studio’s gardens for exclusive spas and luxury hotels, we we would be delighted to share some of the hotels and members’ spas we have worked with to enhance their guests’ experiences beyond their building.
