CHP is a locally managed and governed charitable housing association based in Chelmsford, Essex. They provide high-quality affordable homes to rent or buy, with 8,500 homes across Essex. They work closely with residents, local authorities, private sector companies, other charitable agencies and public sector bodies.
ANS Global was given the design brief to help CHP to make a strong green statement in their new offices in Chelsmford. Part of this was for the benefit of visitors, residents and stakeholders alike, while the organisation’s staff wanted to see real life and colour in their new offices. ANS Global designed and fabricated a row of silhouette buildings, all different styles and sizes, and used different coloured moss to depict each building. All the fabrication was done offsite, with the installation being completed over a single weekend, ready for the opening of the new workspace. The preserved moss art panels are fixed installations with no growth or decay, so there’s no need for irrigation or maintenance. This means the terrace design will retain its colours, shapes and textures for years ahead.
