To celebrate 500 years of gardening at Hampton Court Palace, Collaborate were commissioned by Historic Royal Palaces to create a series of permanent interpretative points around the garden. We worked with the team to develop a sympathetic palette of materials which fits within such an historical context. This included a set of wrought iron frameworks which hold tiled panels containing interpretative stories and illustrations. The tiles were individually crafted, fired and treated to last outside in all weathers. We have also created a series of deck chairs for visitors and polo shirts for the gardens team depicting significant characters from the garden’s long and colourful history.
