Landscaping at Stoke Quay, Ipswich
James Blake Associates was commissioned to carry out concept through to detailed landscape design and working drawings/setting out for the construction of new apartments on the beautiful quayside in the centre of Ipswich.
This encompassed landscape hardworks and softworks, i.e, surfacing, boundary treatments, furniture, lighting and artistic features.
Most of the ground floor spaces are accessible to the public, so planting had to be robust and durable while also creating a welcoming and attractive environment for residents and the local community.
Private courtyards with seating, raised planters, and play features were also included within the design.
The commission also included liaison with the local community and extensive collaboration with the construction team.
