Green Infrastructure        
We have also addressed, with our collaborators Macfarlane Wilder Landscape Architects, a further key objective of sustainable suburbia; the inclusion of public open space. Public open space can contribute to that essential characteristic of suburbia; a setting of openness, natural surrounding and greenery.

It can also provide for recreation, children’s play, biodiversity, rain water management and the use of water, planting and trees to mitigate the effects of the rising temperatures of climate change.






 

Squares, greens and commons of different scale and character could be created
