As landscape architects, we have a profound understanding of the interface between human and natural systems. Whether in an urban, peri urban or rural environment, we explore opportunities for people to collaborate with nature in order to achieve a truly regenerative outcome for each project. Through insightful design and co-creation, we believe we can inspire and enable the transition to a healthy, resilient and more beautiful world.
Work is nearing completion on three developments of new build timber frame council homes for Bristol City Council. Working with the limited space available for soft landscape on these urban infill sites, Roundfield have made a strong feature of sustainable urban drainage systems which positively influence the landscape character. Water features have been designed to direct roof and paving run off through permeable paving, conveyance channels and bio-retention areas. The most challenging aspect has been to ‘stitch’ each development into it’s surrounding residential context to avoid overlooking, particularly on the more sloped sites.
