New Housing developments

Project : Urban developments
Location : Salisbury & North Calne, England
Practice : LTC Landscape Architecture
Year : 2006-2007, Project completed

Two examples of detailed design of housing developments :

  • Plan no.1 : Detailed design of Old Sarum Square: The idea is to create one large open space and prioritise pedestrian access. The road and pedestrian areas are therefore set at the same level but with a different colour in material and seperated by bollards. This naturally forces cars to slow down when entering the square.
  • Plan no.2 : Detailed planting plan of 'Bever Brook Lane', old country lane integretated in the new housing estate. The planting plan shows the existing hedge being returned to its old glory by filing the gaps with native species, integrating new trees, and along its stream edges, the uses of wildflower plugs to re-create its original countryside feel.
