Encombe House in Dorset, was once the estate of Lord Eldon, whose daughter eloped with Landscape Architect, Humphrey Repton. The grounds are filled and surrounded by architectural follies and has a lake as its central feature with a Grecian poolside temple overlooking it. Following in the romantic vein of the present owner’s Great Grandma a loveseat/arbour was proposed as a feature to link disparate elements. This new architectural element in combination with a new wall better contained the pool area; whilst also offering views to connect it with the lake and other pavilions in the grounds.
