BARRHEAD SOUTH GREENSPACE
HERE+NOW prepared a detailed landscape design for a greenspace network in Barrhead South. We facilitated design workshops with locals as part of the process to integrate design and engagement.
HERE+NOW were appointed by East Renfrewshire Council to prepare a detailed design greenspace network proposal for three connected sites, in support of the Barrhead South development masterplan. The outputs included a fully illustrated report documenting the principles and approach for the landscape-led project, and detailed design of three greenspaces as a series of connected projects. HERE+NOW produced concept diagrams, an illustrative masterplan, eyelevel montages, detailed sections, and coordinated costing advice and ecological input from others.
An integrated part of this project was two linked participation workshops with the local secondary school. A group of 15 students shared their ideas and aspirations for the site, and in a second follow up workshop listened to a presentation of the emerging design proposals before providing feedback and adding further ideas to the landscape plans. This process was documented and fed forward, hopefully initiating further future input and engagement with the plans.
