The Connaught opens ballroom and Moon Garden

The Connaught, London has opened its new ballroom and Moon Garden for events and functions. Up to 200 guests can attend the ballroom, where cuisine will is prepared by Michelin-starred chef Helene Darroze. Entrance to the ballroom, Georgian and Regency rooms are approached via a courtyard garden designed by six-time Chelsea Flower Show winner Tom Stuart-Smith. The floor to ceiling windows of the ground floor look out to the Japanese-inspired garden, which has a black granite serpentine water feature and limestone paving. Stuart-Smith wanted to create a design that was simple and potent at the same time to fill the 15m by 3.5m space. It’s an evocation or a crystallization of the idea of a landscape into a tiny space,” explained Stuart-Smith. Other features include a cloud-pruned Japanese tree, boxed hedges and hundreds of fibre optic lights embedded into the water centrepiece.
