Working at Planit-IE during our year out couldn’t have provided us with a better insight into the landscape profession. We have both had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects throughout the year; ranging from parks and large public spaces, to streets and garden design.
Sketching is a timeless tradition – architects, artists, urbanists and casual observers have been drawing for as long as we’ve been observing, recording and designing our environment. It has been the designer’s favoured means of hashing out and exploring ideas throughout history. Unfettered by the rise of photography, tablets and other mediums; ink and graphite remains an essential tool for expressing ideas on-the-fly.
We are delighted to welcome three new members of staff to the practice. Helen Saunders joins the London studio as a Graduate Landscape Architect. Emma Thompson and Laura Atkinson join the Altrincham studio as Assistant Landscape Architect and Receptionist respectively.
Reversal of Altrincham’s prospects is steadily building. The benefits of an enhanced shopping experience, open festivals in Goose Green and environmental improvements stemming from the recently completed public realm scheme, will underpin residents’ confidence as the second phase of the works is implemented.
