AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
To regenerate a key area of the Academy campus, creating an inspirational, robust and usable outdoor urban landscape.
The existing landscape fabric is stark, run down and uninviting for students, staff and visitors. It serves as an importantarterial route that connects different faculty buildings, with a heavy footfall of students.
The landscape design concept brings a modern, attractive and exciting approach to the space, overlaying several layers of design which work in harmony with the existing site context and buildings.
A green layer of specimen tree’s and shrub’s provide a counter balance to the dominant buildings, and by visually screening and softening the architecture.
Routes are now defined with walling, seating and planting beds, with changes to the surfacing that help create different character zones and hierarchy.
The overall layout creates a variety of informal and less formal areas for students to meet, eat lunch, and interact with the landscape environment.
The space now be can be used for events and meetings with existing and prospective parents, teachers and students throughout the year.
We have collaborated with Steven and Concept in various larger projects. Steven helped us reach functional designs that meet all the requirements set by the various Councils. His professional attitude, attention to detail and specifications along with the quick production of various solutions to site specific issues, make him a valuable collaborator.

As a reference, we were highly impressed with the design proposals and professional services that were carried out by Concept Landscape Architects. They were commissioned by the MCC to understand and come up with new ideas for the landscape of several prominent areas within the grounds of Lords Cricket Club. They successfully did this and managed to interpret the everyday, commercial and inspirational requirements of the club.
