Plincke worked with Foster + Partners on this healthcare facility just outside the village of Peasedown St John, five miles south of Bath. The development aims to provide a technically advanced and sustainable healing environment at a human scale, which promotes the use of good design as an essential part of the healing process.
The landscape design provides a high quality ‘healing landscape,’ with themed formal planting areas of sensory and medicinal plants. The landscape proposal also integrates the facility into its wider setting. Visually strong entrances and arrival areas, and sensitive boundary treatments provide a legible environment and a comfortable fit within a countryside setting.
