Rushden Lakes

Work has finished on our Garden Square scheme at Rushden Lakes! Set within the beautiful Nene Valley, the vision for the public realm at Garden Square stemmed from the idea of creating a verdant oasis in this corner of Rushden Lakes, giving visitors the opportunity to relax in a calm space surrounded by greenery. A natural play space creates an exciting opportunity for children to explore in amongst fallen logs and boulders and insect and bird habitats nestled in the trees boost the habitat for locally important species.
It's been a joy to see the scheme come to life and we look forward to seeing it bloom over the coming months!

SouthGate, Bath

Work is about to get on the ground at our exciting SouthGate project in our home City of Bath.

This public realm scheme celebrates the local area’s unique landscapes and heritage and will bring about enhanced green spaces, bespoke seating elements and imaginative planting and artwork to enliven the centre’s outdoor spaces.

Working alongside local primary schools and the Holburne Museum, we’ve designed a bespoke lantern sculpture at the heart of the scheme, projecting an A-Z of ‘What Bath means to me’ onto the surrounding Bath stone buildings.
