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!
We are very happy to welcome Mike Westley to the team
