Landscape Design Projects
LANDSCAPE CHARACTER ASSESSMENT
This project focuses on the Landscape Character Assessment of the prosperous town of Ilkley in West Yorkshire. It researches and documents a proven approach to how a landscape can be observed, analysed, described, categorised and evaluated. It also investigates the importance of making good landscape judgement and the impact of these on future development plans.
Kirkstall has, for so long, been inward focused and has neglected to nurture the very asset it has at the bottom of the garden … THE RIVER. This project aims to turn Kirkstall around and to focus on making the most of both existing and potential assets of Kirkstall and it’s community. This vision offers to deliver a new lease of life to the area, to provide additional income, new jobs and a focus for the community.
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.
