This five storey office building is located in the centre of Green Park. PLACE took the landscape scheme from inception through to construction, working closely with the client to meet their specific requirements in terms of pedestrian and vehicular circulation, plot security and staff amenity facilities. The building looks out over Longwater, the central lake and the landscape design takes advantages of this setting, creating places for recreation and relaxation for both employees and visitors. The landscape and ecological design was subject to consultation with the Environment Agency and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and has contributed towards the scheme achieving the BREEAM status of excellent.
