The total refurbishment of the existing office block included the re-locating of the building entrance, requiring whole-sale redesign of the building curtilage and car-parking areas, ensuring sweeping views and access to the newly framed building entrance.
ASA Landscape Architects saw the project from concept development, planning through to onsite construction. The contemporary landscape proposals were designed to meet the very high quality aesthetic requirements of the location, ensuring year round interest and nectar provision.
A series of stepped planted walls over-come level challenges and frame the new entrance and stairs, with a striking mixture of grey paving blocks with granite surface aggregates selected to provide a premium finish and complement the grey of the low walls and building façade.
Columnar trees complement the 3 storey façade, with ornamental grasses providing movement in the landscape, contrasting against clipped box hedges and pleached trees. In the wider carpark, all verges have been replanted to provide colour, structure, movement and interest.
