Land Studio to deliver “nature-led” project on the Welsh coast

by | 10 Apr 24 | Landscape Architecture, News

Land Studio is partnering with Gwynedd Council to deliver a new design for the public realm space at the Viaduct Gardens in Barmouth, mid Wales.

The Chester based studio’s plans will look to alleviate historic flooding issues through the use of open and covered SuDs systems.

Surface water collected will be retained in new coastal themed planting beds. The planting concept will “reflect that of the local flora, with hardy coastal pioneers, multi-stem birch trees and large specimen Scots pine tree,” says Land Studio’s managing director, Simon Richards.

New outdoor furniture will also be established in the space to encourage community engagement and connectivity.

“Whenever we start a project we aim to build with nature to ensure that our schemes are of their place. In Barmouth, this means embracing and working with the nature of a coastal environment ensuring that our designs sit within the landscape and not apart from it.”

Land Studio says having its landscape architects, ecologists and engineering design experts working together under one roof will allow them to deliver a “really joined-up nature-led design approach.”
