Chris Beardshaw designs The Morgan Stanley Garden for Great Ormond Street Hospital

great ormond street

Chris Beardshaw has described The Morgan Stanley Garden for Great Ormond Street Hospital as “one of the most significant and poignant gardens of my career”.

The enclosed, courtyard style garden, which will feature at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016, has been resourcefully designed to work as both a show garden as well as a permanent garden scheme. It will provide a much needed private and reflective space for parents and families of the children undergoing care at Great Ormond Street Hospital on completion in summer 2016.

Morgan Stanley’s sponsorship of the Garden for Great Ormond Street Hospital at RHS Chelsea Flower Show is part of the company’s Global Alliance for Children’s Health, which goes back more than 40 years. Since 2007, Morgan Stanley has raised over £12m through corporate donations and employee fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Plantsman and designer Christ will predominantly work with woodland species to create a rich, green and verdant contrast to the buildings surrounding it. Sprinkled amongst this will be pockets of sparkling colourful planting, which will burst through the tree canopy or the perennial understory, highlighting the effervescence and optimism of childhood.

Chris Beardshaw said: “These lushly planted areas will feature some species of plants which only open when hit by direct sunlight which, in the final relocated garden at Great Ormond Street Hospital, will be for brief periods of time. Consequently these plants will provide a fleeting and emotional response for those who happen to be there to witness them. The garden also contains a reflective water feature, running the length of the garden which will showcase a number of specially commissioned artworks.”

This garden is the second Show Garden Chris has designed for Morgan Stanley. In 2015, the firm asked Chris to create a garden which, after Chelsea, went on to provide the centrepiece for a highly successful community garden in Poplar, in East End of London, as part of the Morgan Stanley’s Healthy Cities Initiative.
