Overview

Our health and wellbeing and the quality of the outdoor spaces we create has never been more important. As a practise, respond to this by bringing colour, nature and movement into our work to create rich, vibrant and immersive spaces. Within our education work, this approach is reinforced. We have started the creation of a colourful new playground for a school in Oxfordshire where further elements of a nature garden and reflective space will follow later this year. Our ongoing work on university campuses and sixth form colleges is defined by the intervention of nature and colour into the public realm to connect students with the landscape. The following images provide an overview of our current and ongoing projects in this area.
