Won in open competition, the scheme incorporates a large central communal space for the enjoyment not just of the immediate residents but also the wider community of surrounding estates. The open space divides into an informal lawn edged with planted areas of indigenous species and a childrens adventure play space including facilities for disabled children who make up a small community within the estate.
Each house and flat in the crescent receives direct sunlight as the sun moves from east to west. Landscaping includes car courtyards with trees which shelter and screen the parked cars; pathways connect to the adjoining parkland and the Island cycle track network. Shelter belts of robust planting surround the perimeter of the site and help to isolate the electricity substation and gas governor house.
The project was completed in late 2000 and received “ Highly Commended ” in the Jersey Design and also the Best Landscape Awards of 2002.
To all our clients, colleagues and friends
These are unpreceded times and the ramifications are changing at a rapid rate.
We are already working from home and luckily, we have the technology to operate as normal remotely.
We are currently continuing with our existing projects.
The planning and building departments are still active but in a limited way.
We are staying positive and believe we will come out on the other side stronger.
So, if anyone has an idea or a long held back project,
now could be the time to dust it off or just to touch base and get in touch.
Stay well and safe
From all at a-bcf.
