Pergolas for Hogarth’s House

These three metal pergolas were recently designed and fabricated for the newly refurbished gardens of the 18th century artist, William Hogarth.

Hogarths House is in Chiswick, West London and the pergolas recreate a ‘Nut walk’ that featured in the original garden. Hazel has recently been planted at the base so over the coming years the coppice will be trained over the structures, which will give the pathway a lovely enclosed feel.

We also forged a fluid and playful ‘line of beauty’ that runs along the path. This was inspired by Hogarth’s own work and unites the three arches. The arches run for over 14 metres and are forged and fabricated in steel.
