Client: Alumno Developments
Park Hill is now under Phase 3 of a redevelopment plan being led by development partner Alumno Developments. We have embarked on designing the Park Hill landscape that turns an overrun and unsafe environment into an outdoor space that will reflect the architectural functions within the building.
Helping to bring a structure back to life and re-engage a community spirit
The lower level spaces will provide a range of areas for outdoor socialising, dining and study, as well as potential commercial break-out space adjacent to the commercial zone within the building, helping to bring the structure back to life and to help re-engage the community spirit.
The outdoor space is designed to provide a range of areas that accommodate residents and visitors, from outdoor study to lawns for informal sports.
Our design celebrates the heritage and iconic design of the original Le Corbusier-inspired building by retaining and revealing existing architectural features within the landscape, including imposing concrete retaining walls, ramps, and sunken gardens.
The planting is key to defining and shaping the space. The areas around the main entrances will be richly planted to create a sense of arrival, a central lawn is located at the heart of the scheme and the whole space is framed by low maintenance gardens to buffer views from private flats and reflect the wider local landscape.
To be involved in this scheme has been both exciting and emotional! The landscape that we have designed will promise to compliment such a wonderful architectural structure and provide an outdoor space that the residents will enjoy and love.
