Affordable housing scheme with communal landscape in Brighton
The landscape design seeks to create an understated space that enhances the naturalistic mood of the site. We want the residents to enjoy the surrounding green amenity and interact with one another by using the garden as a place to relax, play and escape from city life.
The primary response is to maintain and enhance the screening to the perimeter of the site.
By removing the numerous self seeded trees and shrubs allows for greater appreciation of the existing mature trees and provides the opportunity to introduce a lower ground layer of native, ornamental planting.
Providing habitats for wildlife and space for resident interaction are also key considerations.
