Green Space & Public Realm

­

Newcastle Science Central

Newcastle Science Central is a new science-themed urban quarter in the heart of Newcastle, which occupies the 20ha former Tyne Brewery site. Part of a multidisciplinary team, we were the landscape architect behind the public realm design and associated statutory consents for the development. The brief defined strong aspirations for a distinctive high-quality public realm which promotes [...]

Tumbling Bay Playground

Designing play areas where learning is inevitable LUC and erect architecture were asked to deliver a brand new “play, leisure and learning experience of international renown” in the northern Olympic Park in Stratford. The scheme had a complex web of stakeholders, clients, multi-tiered statutory consultees and its own Games planning authority. We designed an expansive [...]

The Heartlands Project

Sustainable design as a catalyst for regeneration. The Heartlands Project is a community-led vision to transform 7.5ha of Cornwall’s most derelict industrial landscape into a truly inspirational cultural attraction. We won an international competition to masterplan and design an imaginative mixed-use site that celebrated the culture of Cornwall and became a catalyst for regeneration. Our [...]

The Royal Parks

Protecting the unique status and value of The Royal Parks LUC has provided planning, landscape architecture, management and ecology consultancy services to The Royal Parks for nearly 40 years, contributing everything from ecology surveys and enhancement strategies to giving planning advice on development proposals. We know the 2,000 hectares of historic parkland as well as [...]

The Level

Transforming a deprived city park into an exciting, inclusive and popular urban asset The Level, a city centre park in Brighton, had a confused layout, had fallen into misuse and suffered general degradation. As lead consultants on its reinvention, we were involved from the inception of the stage 1 Heritage Lottery Fund bid and feasibility [...]

Shawfield National Business District

Holistic landscape design will be essential to successful regeneration. LUC worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team to deliver this large-scale sustainable development framework in the east of Glasgow: a new city district, with improved connectivity to other regeneration sites. Long-term transformation of this deprived area was the objective; the Shawfield National Business District could [...]

Inverness City Centre Streetscape

Reclaiming the urban landscape for its most valuable users – pedestrians. The Inverness city centre streetscape project transformed the historic core of Inverness through comprehensive public realm enhancements, including traffic calming, a public art programme and new lighting. The central objectives were to improve the pedestrian environment and make the city centre safe again. Our [...]

Century Park, Shanghai

Masterplanning a new public park to see China into the 21st century. Following an international design competition for a new park that would form the centrepiece of Shanghai’s financial district, Pudong, we were appointed masterplanner for the realisation of the concept. The design includes major new landforms and bodies of water to ameliorate Shanghai’s occasionally [...]

State of the UK’s Parks Scoping Report

Making the case for preserving public expenditure on public parks The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has invested significantly in restoring, enhancing and maintaining public parks and, with financial cuts a possibility, was keen that its investment so far wouldn’t be placed at risk. The organisation needed to raise awareness of the negative impacts of cutting [...]

South West Acute Hospital

Masterplanning a complex greenfield development LUC is the masterplanner and landscape architect behind this new hospital outside Enniskillen in Northern Ireland. This was an immensely complex project, integrating extensive development into a sensitive context whilst minimising environmental impacts. The role of landscape in most hospital projects is usually cosmetic. But one of the key drivers [...]
