a corner block, with a unique dual frontage to two residential roads. The site’s broader context includes a mixed variation of low and high density residential developments which also range in character from pre- war to contemporary housing typologies.

As part of our work at the University of Liverpool at Crown Place, we have linked the new residences with the rest of the university campus and the surrounding city scape with extensive public realm.

Astrea Academy

Occupying a prominent site over looking the city centre, the landscape design has had to integrate a new build and refurbishment of an existing listed building on to a site which has a level difference of over  40 meters within it’s boundary.  We took the opportunity to create a variety of outdoor spaces that respond to the educational brief and maximise opportunity for sport for both school and community use.
