The scheme incorporates the Rio Tinto slates into a splayed layout with the slates stepping down in height revealing planting at different levels. The stepped slates are arranged so as to give focus to a feature tree located in a pivotal position.

Feature lines of a contrasting material would be incorporated flush into the paving. Fixed tables within the café area are around waist height and act as leaning posts.

Hemel Hempstead - People Building

Peoplebuilding Hemel is a 500,000 sq ft / 45 acre business park at Hemel Hempstead and is comparable to Chiswick Park.

The landscape masterplan ensured the integration of new buildings within a new woodland landscape. The landscape is tight to the built form with no visible change between the open grass areas and building margin.

Working with architects Foster & Partners, CFA developed a proposal for using a fastigiate form of Liquidambar together with Wisteria to green the existing party walls.

The initial planting produced a green coverage of around 9 metres height. CFA also produced details for new tree planting around the proposed development and were involved with the design and detailing of two roof terraces.
