Obstacle

There is strong evidence to show that being around gardens and landscape is therapeutic and can reduce stress levels and improve overall wellbeing. Therefore a fundamental concern for the project was ensuring that all site users including residents, workers and visitors were able to actively and passively interact with nature and had multiple opportunities to do so site-wide.

Our Approach

LEAD Consultants were acutely aware of the strong academic research confirming the physical and mental benefits people derive from interacting with nature. The project design was centred around improving the quality of the landscape in key areas of the site, the residents’ exposure and connection to nature were improved to offer therapy in the landscape. Opportunities for both direct and indirect interactions with nature are present in the site and the masterplan identifies various types of landscapes which offer different opportunities for improvement and recreation.
