The Resting Gardens Of Berkhamsted

A place for the future, enriched by the past

The Resting Gardens of Berkhamsted serve as an athenaeum of local community: a shared heartland where memory, reflection, remembrance, history and understanding are celebrated and interlaced with contemporary society.

This space is conceived as a Surrealist series of ‘moments’, artefacts of accommodation united by colour and material, that offer a comfortable place for pause. Arranged to open up vistas through and out of the site, these moments provide opportunity for gathering, contemplation and delight – while celebrating the long rich history of Berkhamsted.
