Plot Ar­ti­san 560 Spon­sor Vik­ing Cruises Con­trac­tor GK Wil­son Land­scapes Theme A tran­quil gar­den in­spired by Scan­di­na­vian plants and struc­tures

For his Vik­ing Cruises Well­ness Gar­den, Paul has drawn on Bru­tal­ism, a mod­ernist ar­chi­tec­tural style first iden­ti­fied in Swe­den, for the un­adorned sauna build­ing, the metal-edged plunge pool and the an­gu­lar wooden bench in this Scan­di­navi­ain­spired gar­den. A tim­ber walk­way links the sauna to the pool at the back of the gar­den, where slate boul­ders are used to re­tain the slope. A se­ries of float­ing plat­forms in Scan­di­na­vian pine lead from the back to the deck at the front of the gar­den. An an­cient mul­berry cre­ates a fo­cal point in front of the pool while the soft plant­ing, in shades of pink, pur­ple and blue, con­sists of species pre­dom­i­nantly found in Scan­di­navia, in­clud­ing ed­i­bles, woody peren­ni­als and shrubs.
