1976 – Landscape team set up in Manchester
The landscape architecture team started in our Manchester studio in 1976 and has expanded to other teams across many of our studios. Significant projects include Cannon Bridge Roof Garden, one of the largest green spaces in the City of London, Chavasse Park at Liverpool One and Cathedral Gardens in Manchester.
In more recent years, The Hive, at the Milan Expo 2015 stands out as a truly immersive experience that was created through the collaboration of art, landscape and lighting design.
The transformation of London’s iconic Regent Street to create a greener, healthier and more sustainable West End is an excellent illustration of our team’s design ethos as is West Gorton Community Park – which uses nature-based design solutions to combat the effects of flooding in the area.
