B|D win 3 national Landscape Institute Awards
We were delighted to pick up three 2017 Landscape Institute awards:
The King’s Cross Pond Club is the first freshwater public bathing pond of its kind in the UK and was overall WINNER in the Design for a Temporary Landscape category. The ground-breaking and popular Pond Club was sited within Cubitt Park at King’s Cross from 2015-2016 and developed in collaboration with OOZE architects for Argent Estates. The judges said ‘This scheme set an innovative precedent for how public swimming pools could be conceived and delivered’.
Lovedon Fields is an exemplar landscape-led HAB Housing development currently on site in Kings Worthy and won a Highly Commended award in the Local Landscape Planning category – designed in collaboration with John Pardey Architects and the judges remarked ‘An exemplar of how planning for housing on the edge of an existing settlement should be delivered’.
The Milkshake Tree won a Highly Commended award in the Design for a Temporary Landscape category – this installation as part of the 2016 London Festival of Architecture was designed and delivered in collaboration with pH+ architects for the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy. The judges said ‘Materiality and concept have been blended perfectly to create a compelling landscape’.
