COMPLEX LEVEL CHANGE + CONCEPTUAL DESIGN
This residential landscape offers distinct spaces over a variety of levels with a rich concept based around water. A ‘ravine’ in the communal gardens contrasts with a ‘hill top’ landscape on the private roof terrace. The communal courtyard used a series of angular forms to reference the process of water cutting into bedrock. Steps were narrowed to focus the view of feature trees and a play area, which utilised a 1300mm change in level between the sites, provided much needed pay opportunity with the space. The roof terrace uses a series of sinuous lines to form communal spaces, which extend from the social to the intimate. Planting offers a rich and diverse planting palette with maximum credits being achieved for Eco Code for Sustainable Homes credits. EA were commissioned by Taylor Wimpey Central London to work in association with Darling Associates Architects to design the landscape portions of a combined scheme at Ashley House, Monck Street and No 1 Chadwick Terrace, Westminster.
