The Oaks, Acton

For more information please see our website
We were commissioned to provide landscape related information as part of a detailed planning submission  for this mixed use development located in west London.

At ground level, our proposals addressed the proposed buildings interface with the existing urban context. The needs of deliveries, commercial unit access and pedestrian access have all been considered within our design. The banding within the ground floor paving pattern responds to the elevational treatment of the building, providing a suitable context in which the building is to be located.

In addition we have proposed new connection routes from the proposed development into an existing adjacent park. The intention of this additional proposal is to bring this existing under used park into common use and to create a safer, self policing environment.

Our second and third floor proposals responds to the needs of the adjacent proposed residential units. Enclosed private patios are dedicated to all adjacent residential units. Communal spaces are proposed for use of all residents. These include hard and soft landscape elements and three informal play areas split of the two levels.

In locations where roof are not publicly accessible, green roofs were proposed.

We were commissioned by the client to carry out a landscape appraisal of this small park, formally a burial ground.

This appraisal was prepared to support a detailed planning application for an adjacent site. The details of this report informed the boundary treatment between the two plots and the locations of proposed connection into the existing park. This document help to support the argument that the connections proposed would help to enliven and reinvigorate this under used public space.
