Resolving the disconnect between architects and regulation
Our experience in both horticulture and architectural design affords us a consolidated view of the opportunities there are in urban greening.

Look into the process
For an insight into where we've come from, how we work with our clients and what's been achieved so far, take a look at our new online storybook.
Project Coleman: Data Centre
With a new-build data centre in the plans, the brief was essentially to soften the building without reducing the building’s footprint, whilst engaging the local community through the use of greening and improving accessibility.
Dartford Town Centre
Project Centre contacted us to work on improving the area of Bell Corner in Dartford town, having been inspired by our work at St James’s Market. For the design, we looked to the location and history of the site where we came up with the concept.
Child Graddon Lewis approached us as the experts for bringing together multiple greening systems, and as a team that could develop a full biophilic architecture package. One of the main purposes behind enhancing the area was to encourage workers to come back to the office once Covid restrictions were lifted.
Establishing a Comprehensive Urban Greening Scheme
Appropriate for developments that have already achieved planning and are looking to develop the possibilities further.
This level allows us to give comprehensive guidance following an in-depth feasibility analysis and an understanding of goals and constraints on the scheme. Based on meeting policy and achieving high environmental standards, we examine the opportunities to form the proposal.
There are several benefits of working with us on Phase 2 consultation which you can explore in more detail in our service guide. We’ve selected the 3 we feel are most important below.
