What is this tree/shrub, and what to plant next to it?

My step daughter has just moved house and wondering what to plant to 'mask' this gap in the wall- they've taken a shrub out. The site is North West facing, loamy soil and does get some sun. Can anyone identify the lanky tree (photo of leaf attached), and would it benefit from 'renovation' pruning?
I think the gap there is too small for a shrub. If you dig a deeper border, maybe something like Choisya x Dewitteana 'Aztec Pearl' can look nice there.
