Rushden Lakes Garden Sq – Macgregor Smith – Landscape Architecture
Here are some images of Dylan Group’s Hardwood Robinia timber being used as part of the construction for Macgregor Smith’s Rushden Lakes Garden Sq (Square) Project. Dylan Group supplied the Robinia timber used for the retaining walls and free standing forked poles.
Set within the beautiful Nene Valley, Rushden Lakes is a unique hub for the local area, focused around the Skew Bridge Ski Lake. Visitors can shop, dine along the lakeside, take a canoe out on the water or hire a bike and take many of the trails which fork out from the Nene Wetlands Visitor Centre on site. The vision for the public realm at Garden Square stemmed from the idea of creating a verdant oasis in this corner of Rushden Lakes, giving visitors the opportunity to relax in a calm space surrounded by greenery. The space encourages people to explore and interact with their surroundings and builds upon the unique character of the Rushden Lakes. A natural play space creates an exciting opportunity for children to explore in amongst fallen logs and boulders and insect and bird habitats nestled in the trees boost the habitat for locally important species.
The images of the project have been supplied by Macgregor Smith – Landscape Architecture:
