Background

The landscape design for this prestigious new building made reference to the design codes created for the wider campus, using established stone wall and paving materials at the main entrance, modified to create a distinctive frontage for the Sheppard Robson building.

The project features a large external garden space for users which was deliberately laid out to contrast with the linear nature of the wider campus.

This was to create an attractive series of circular gathering and meeting spaces off a broad curved pathway, within a rich matrix of seasonal planting.
