A commercial project involving the conversion of an old municipal building into flats. The grounds needed to be contemporary but also practical, housing car parking, bikes and entrances to each property alongside a communal garden area. Biscuit coloured resin bonded gravel created a modern look while planting consisted of grasses for movement and perennials for delicate colour to soften the utilitarian look of the old municipal building. Planning regulations encouraged the planting of mature trees which added height and interest. Shaded areas were planted with soft ferns and shrubs.
