ESSEX- Completed 2019

BBUK Studio Limited were appointed by Countryside Properties to design the landscape and public realm for the Newhall Phase CP1B housing development located just outside Harlow in Essex.

Working alongside four architectural practices, ecologists and civil engineers, our work on the landscape and public realm encapsulated the streets, frontage and street hierarchy, car parking areas, and strategic open spaces including playing fields, play spaces and informal open space featuring existing trees and a new retention pond. The site boundaries were also designed to integrate with the context of the surrounding area.

Planting included a mix of shrubs, perennials and ornamental grasses chosen to enhance the character of the spaces both visually and environmentally, with species chosen to create year-round interest with an emphasis placed on UK native plants or plants that have a wildlife benefit.
