Since setting up her own firm in 2017, North London-based garden and landscape designer Alexandra Noble already has a clutch of awards to her name. Her residential gardens and landscapes – noted for their compositions rich in colour and texture – have featured on BBC 2 and Gardener’s World, as well as in British Vogue, the Telegraph, ELLE Decoration and Enki magazine.
Noble originally obtained a degree in Architecture from the University of Bath before changing tack to study Horticulture at Capel Manor in Regent’s Park. A two-year stint at the studio of Luciano Giubbilei followed, as well as work with Jo Thompson, before Alexandra Noble Design was formed. Since then, the practice has completed projects across sites including an installation at London Bridge and a house on the borders of Hampstead Heath ponds, paying special attention to the surrounding natural habitat with schemes that encourage plant pollination and local wildlife to thrive.
