We will deliver the master plan with an open and collaborative team, each member bringing a vast range of complementary skills and experience to create a transformative vision for Ladyfield.
Collective Architecture has undertaken a variety of projects over the past 20 years that have transformed places and their immediate/wider communities through imaginative placemaking strategies and the adaptation of existing sites, buildings and landscapes. Collective Architecture has extensive experience in delivering strategic plans, housing developments and community buildings at a variety of scales. For this commission we have drawn on an experienced team who have successfully delivered housing projects within existing communities, involving master-planning neighbourhoods, often in a phased manner. The team have experience of delivering solutions within complex and challenging locations, including in Dumfries & Galloway.
Landscape Architects RaeburnFarquharBowen’s interests lie in creating rich, diverse landscapes for people and wildlife to cohabit, and in developing exciting and relevant designs through open engagement and community co-design. We have extensive experience of landscape masterplanning for sustainable communities, in addition to experience within and adjacent to historic designed landscapes and also working within the Dumfries and Galloway area. RaeburnFarquharBowen have a strong track record of working with historic landscapes and settings and look to strike a careful balance between retaining and celebrating the rich character of individual sites with sensitive management and restoration; and seeking opportunities for further development appropriate to each setting. This has enabled us to reinvigorate and re-purpose many historic landscapes to accommodate the wants and needs of 21st century life. Their landscape masterplanning credentials are well established and we have particular interest and expertise in green infrastructure, biodiversity, and facilitating active travel to create spaces for people, plants and wildlife to thrive in the 21st century.
