Concept development for creating a new ecological park. Our scheme sought to begin with small interventions and provision of basic facilities. This included design of ‘land-art’ ground modelling that would create striking black landcsape features, using the on-site material and reflecting the history as a coal mine. Aspirations would evolve over time, with community input, seeking to move towards a destination green space for public events and activities.
