RESIDENTIAL CONVERSION   ExA were commissioned to develop high end landscape proposals for this office to residential conversion with commercial ground floor. 

CONTEMPORARY APPROACH  The proposal uses sharp geometric forms relating to the legacy of the Ilford film and black and white television.  The development included a first floor terrace garden located over commercial units.  The design draws for this area uses organic forms, in contract to the adjacent architecture, which frame a number of semi-private spaces in this communal space.

PLANTING   Planting was of a strongly native character and designed to have a rich ecological undercurrent to support bird, bat and insect life within this strongly urban character.
