Newtown: Going Green for a Living

A 45 hectare green masterplan for Newtown as part of the 'Going Green for a Living' project. The Green Infrastructure scheme includes a destination play park, cafe, mountain bike trail, allotments, bmx track, events space, canoe facilities and native tree and wildlflower planting. The proposals, developed with local architects and stakeholders, secured National Lottery funding of over £1m and will help Newtown make the most of its green spaces, benefiting the community, local economy and wildlife.

National Design Competition, Cumbria

We recently showcased our 3D landform modelling skills for a Landscape Institute competition to create a new park from 11 million m3 of spoil from the proposed Moorside Power Station in Cumbria. Our sinuous design integrates with existing habitats and access networks while creating tranquil spaces and dramatic vistas with some striking landform design elements, inspired by crystal structures.
