LDA Design was commissioned to produce design proposals for the restoration of the Forty Hall Estate, an historic house and landscape on the edge of London. Listed as Grade II, the historic designed landscape is focused on the Grade I-listed 17th century mansion and contains the preserved remains of the former Tudor royal palace of Elsyng. The landscape also includes an early example of a ‘ferme ornée’ landscape. Projects included restoration of the 16th century water gardens; restoration work to the formal pond, revealing and recreating the adjacent amphitheatre earthwork; and restoration of the 18th century ‘Oak Grove’ and pleasure grounds.
