Landscape Design Projects
HARLOW CARR PUBLIC GARDEN
The RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr are undergoing comprehensive improvements to enhance the gardens as a commercial attraction and educational resource and to cater for the growing numbers of visitors and organisational objectives. The proposed Spa Centre and Cafe Gardens provides new and exciting opportunities for visitors and the RHS alike, increasing visitor numbers and raising further revenue. Built around the fresh and inspiring themes of mountain tarns and woodland clearings this design is distinctive and functional whilst celebrating existing natural features and conserving historical values of the site.
BROWNFIELD SITE DEVELOPMENT
This is my current project. I will upload more images as I progress. This work forms part of my MA final major design which is due to complete in mid-May.
GREEN SPACE PLANNING & DESIGN
Regenerating Hunslet is key to delivering a successful Aire Valley Urban Eco Settlement. Here on the banks of the River Aire, long occupied by warehouses, the landscape is poised to change. This proposal creates a new breed of urban eco-settlement, one that brings people closer to the water providing a stimulating living environment whilst encouraging healthier lifestyles. The water park is the key element of the design providing exciting opportunities for informal water play and formal water sports.Click on picture for larger slideshow
CONTEMPORARY PUBLIC SPACE DESIGN
Despite the prominence of the Rose Bowl building and its location on one of the key routes into the city of Leeds the current use of space to the front of the Rose Bowl is uninspiring. The Rosebowl Plaza provides a design concept for a new contemporary public space and a playful uplifting green gateway into Leeds city centre. It offers engaging, flexible spaces for the informal interaction of students, professionals and the general public alike.
DESIGNING FOR PEOPLE AND NATURE
Located at the top of an exposed South Pennine moorland escarpment, at approx 450m above sea level, lies the old sandstone quarries of Nab Hill. The design intervention proposes to build a visitor attraction within this quarry that does more than just beautify an otherwise abused and abandoned landscape – it aims to positively influence how people encounter, interpret and make sense of this wild and ecologically sensitive area.
