The practice is proud to announce its appointment to deliver the external works for this prestigious retirement development in Clapham, Central London. When complete in 2020, Audley’s Nightingale Place will have 94 one to three bedroom apartments as well as a pool, restaurant and health club. The landscape design will comprise a series of unique recreational spaces, shared surfaces and roof terraces, requiring technically demanding detailing within a challenging urban environment.
Proposals to replace the former hospital building in central Bristol with a 715-bed student block by Unite Students, including a communal courtyard and public realm open spaces, have been submitted to Bristol City Council. Landscape design was key for this challenging site which required a considered approach to introduce legibility into the public realm within a site constrained by complex level changes. A sensitive approach was necessary to accommodate the scheme within its townscape setting and to positively address its relationship with adjacent public realm and neighbouring heritage assets.
The practice is pleased to be supporting Bellway Homes on two settlement expansion sites in Gloucestershire. Tutshill and Lydney sites are set in the sensitive landscape of the Forest of Dean and will provide much needed high quality housing for the area. The schemes aim to retain and enhance the existing habitat corridors and hedgerows of the greenfield sites with the addition of new habitats and open space to contribute to biodiversity and the local community's recreational resource. Soltys Brewster are providing landscape design and protected species services (including Badgers, Bats, & Dormice) to inform the discharge of planning conditions and the required licences.
