Here's what we've been up to lately...
For the last 3 months Meiloci have been working with the Green and Whitegold team and SABEF to develop a masterplan for St Austell which seeks to enhance the town and wider area, ‘The St Austell Hinterland', through a strategy of landscape, streetscape and public realm improvements alongside community engagement, consultation and workshops.
As with many such masterplans for townscape and urban improvement there is a specific goal, a legacy, which seeks to improve the attraction of the town to both local community and visitors resulting in long term social and economic gain.
What sets the Green and Whitegold project apart is that this change is being facilitated, not through large scale changes to infrastructure or major development work, but through a strategy of ‘Greening’ and sculptural intervention as a means of capitalising on the existing character and assets within and around St Austell. The Great Cornish Gardens, the dramatic coastline and landscapes associated with the China Clay industry, the rich culture and history associated with this region of Cornwall.
Meiloci are working alongside, Urban Recreation, Darren Hawkes Landscapes, Kneehigh, Edible St Austell and are supported by numerous local businesses and councils. More information can be found on https://www.staustell.co.uk and we will keep you up to date with development.

Please come and help us to make the target 10,000 stoneware tiles. These yellow tiles will help to make the large sculpture of the Cornish Bee!
Meiloci's plans for Kingsbridge Fore Street Public Realm Improvements are now complete.
The project includes footpath widening, decluttering and the creation of pocket parks along the high street, the project looks specifically at making the Fore Street more accessible to pedestrians and encouraging people and businesses to use their streets positively.
Meiloci are very pleased to announce that we will be working on the re design for Penzance Promenade, working with Cormac, and Cornwall Council.
The project will encourage people from all generations and backgrounds to reconnect with the historic promenade.
It has also been announced today that the Penzance prom will be the starting point for the 2020 Tour of Britain!
The latest photos from our project in Abdali. We are really proud of the space, it was a great experience to work with Kim, Lara and Stuart and we are looking forward to seeing the changing installations from sculptors and artists on the podium.
It is exciting to see Nansledan School becoming reality. We have been working for the last two years with the Duchy of Cornwall and Alan Leather Associates to develop the scheme. It is now being constructed by Midas and will be a striking, and unique, school. Originally design by Francis Roberts Architects, the concept for this Arts and Crafts architectural form has been detailed and developed by a great team and we are looking forward to seeing it going forward to completion.
