Main Entrance Approach, Leeds Trinity University, Horsforth

Working in close liaison with client and Farrell and Clark Architects in preparation of a pedestrianised landscaped entrance approach to Leeds Trinity University's new foyer to their main teaching block.  This included prior assistance on a campus wide landscape analysis and strategy which established and illustrated the requirement for pedestrian hubs adjoining the main teaching block entrances.

The scheme comprised a tree lined paved piazza approach with seating, shrub planting and grassed areas.

"Margaret Twigg has completed a number of high profile landscaping projects at the University as part of the transformation of the college estate over the last few years. The new landscaping works to the main entrance areas have made a striking difference to the building setting and contributed to a welcoming new external environment to our key buildings.

Margaret Twigg has worked with the design teams and contractors and contributed to the professional teamwork which has made the projects such a success, with positive feedback and comment from staff, students and visitors alike."
