School Landscape Master Plan

 Client: Girton Grammar School         Status: Strategy        Category: Educational Environments, Landscape Architecture

This established and prestigious school required a comprehensive document to guide future development of the Junior School campus grounds. The report analysed the existing provision of shade, surfacing, furniture and vegetation.

The report discusses research around the benefits to children of exposure to natural and restorative environments.  Given the changing climate anticipated, the report also highlights the benefits of investment in green infrastructure to mitigate high temperatures.

Preliminary concepts were developed for three areas of contiguous space, along with design guidelines for furniture, surfacing, tree and plant species.

The report enables the school to work towards a shared vision, and develop a forward budget to achieve that goal.
