New green heart for the city.
We designed a series of themed lawns, trees, water features, artworks and hard landscape areas in the heart of Manchester’s Millennium Quarter.
Four distinct lawns feature soft rolling mounds, terraces and flowing plateaux with stepped walls, while English oaks, horse chestnuts and pines have been planted to create a miniature arboretum.
We used artworks to highlight the area’s archaeological heritage, stimulating exploration of the gardens through a ‘discovery trail’.
Water links all elements through a source pool, rill channel, finale pool and water jets shooting up to 7m high.
