Tjolöholm - A castle garden by the sea


Prologue

Tjolöholm

Tjolöholm castle is situated by the sea, in a hollow protected by cliffs. The castle environment differs undeniably from the surrounding archipelago landscape, and the sea’s proximity is ever present. Lars Israel Wahlman’s designs for both castle and garden are inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement. He used hedges and walls to create individual spaces, and terraces to link the strict garden to the wilder countryside that surrounds it.
