London Borough of Barnet

R-LA designed 1 hectare of communal landscaped gardens for Littleberries Rosary Manor for Phase 2. The development consists of a Grade II listed building refurbished to provide 12 new luxury flats. The landscaped gardens complement the formal architecture whilst providing a dialogue with the surrounding quintessentially English countryside.

The landscape design resolved complicated drainage and terrain levels enabling a seamless transition between the outdoor communal areas and private patios.

Planting approach featured a formal entrance-way to the Grade II listed buildings, with peripheral gardens becoming more wild and informal blending in with the surrounding landscape.

R-LA used 3D interactive terrain contour modelling to inform the design and discuss options with the client, enabling identification of the optimal design approach.
