Capital Quarter’s landscaping needed to match the architecture’s aspirations; tie together the empty space between accommodation blocks and create a public right of way, all in a peaceful space for the students to relax.

Defined by interweaving pathways, street furniture and vegetation, the concept was to focus on social interaction.

Feature paving ribbons its way through the landscape, while pebble-shaped furniture provides areas to socialise and escape.

Deciduous trees and flowers offer a feeling of peace, and as the seasons come and go, plants will blossom and fade.

Bike racks at every corner to encourage sustainable travel around the city, while the new walkways boost local businesses by linking them to the accommodation.
