Here's what we've been up to lately...
It is very exciting to see a project nearing completion that is so close to the original concept. The paving design is complicated but has been constructed beautifully well. The light strips have been instaled along the darker lines of paving which will look amazing when finished!
The vertical stone louvres, the only element which has changed significantly, were originally steel. They aid both form and function by screening the vents from the car parking below. We think it is all looking fantasic!
Our project at Abdali, Amman, is begining to take shape now with most of the hard works in place and the planting begining to be installed. The project is an atrium landscape that forms part of the public realm and streetscape within a wider area of urban regeneration.
The project was particularly complicated due to the level changes across the front doors into shops and cafes and also that the landscape is a podium with a multi level car park beneath the main space and buildings.
Over the next few weeks the planting will be finished and lighting and furnishing installed . ........ more pics to come!
