Detailed Description

In the centre of the site is a lake with lawns and trees creating a park-like setting. Although the individual sites have access to a central ring road, each office is designed without regard to its neighbour, similar to American industrial park layouts but with English plot divisions. Each building stands in its own landscaped space but there is no sense of being in a large parkland setting as car parking layouts tend to predominate. Those buildings located on the outer side of the ring road are unable to enjoy views of the central landscape.
