AYRSHIRE HOSPICE

Design of a supportive palliative care environment for those in Ayrshire with life-limiting illness

Ayrshire Hospice

Having been involved in early feasibility work to ascertain whether The Ayrshire Hospice could be redeveloped at its existing site close to Ayr Town Centre, Austin-Smith:Lord subsequently won a competitive tender and interview procurement process with Turner & Townsend as Lead Advisor under the Health Facilities Scotland (HFS) Framework to develop the new facility at 35-37 Racecourse Rd and the Hospices’ adjacent site at 15 Ronaldshaw Park.

The existing 20 bedded Inpatient Unit to the rear of the existing listed property at No.35 Racecourse Road will be replaced with a modern compliant inpatient unit comprising 12 single en-suite patient rooms and family areas.

FITZALAN HIGH SCHOOL, CARDIFF

A key brief objective was that the design of the new school should provide flexible and adaptable spaces to teach and learn the New Progressive Curriculum

Fitzalan High School, Cardiff

Austin-Smith:Lord were appointed as part of Kier’s winning team to design the School to RIBA Stage 4 after a mini competition based on Stage 1 information issued by Cardiff Council. The Design Team have worked closely with Cardiff City Council and their advisors, as well as the School, throughout the initial phases of the project.

The brief calls for the provision of a replacement new 11-18 high school at 10FE including 350 post 16 places to address “D” condition categorisation and “D” categorised sufficiency issues in the local area. This project represents a significant new facility for the pupils, staff and local community.

It is proposed that the new Fitzalan High School is built in the same area facing the catchment area that it serves. The site selected is close to the existing Fitzalan High School site, located on the other side of Lawrenny Avenue, Cardiff.

A key brief objective was that the design of the new school should provide flexible and adaptable spaces to teach and learn the New Progressive Curriculum. Our design proposals are supportive in delivering these principles and supporting the changing role of the teacher as a facilitator of learning.

We feel that ASL totally understood our vision and passion for our school and what we wanted the new school to enable us to be. They have captured our demands for an inspirational environment that also allows us to deliver the curriculum in the bespoke responsive way that ensures our pupils will be successful. We cannot be constrained by typical classrooms and traditional methods and the ASL team have grasped that as a concept and designed an amazing facility that will allow for the flexibility and innovation that we are so keen to continue.

THE BLUECOAT, LIVERPOOL (LANDSCAPE)

RIBA Award-winning arts centre

The Bluecoat, Liverpool

The Bluecoat is the earliest surviving building in Liverpool city centre and the oldest arts space of its kind in the United Kingdom. Built in 1717 as a school for poor children, it became an arts centre in 1911, and hosted the first ever UK exhibition outside of London featuring works by Picasso, Matisse, Cézanne and Van Gogh.

Austin-Smith:Lord’s brief was to reposition the arts centre as the city’s new creative hub, restoring the historic fabric of the Grade I listed building, improving access and adding a new wing for an art gallery and multi-purpose performance space in time for the European Capital of Culture celebrations in 2008.

The new garden at the Bluecoat has opened the area up and is now used by all who visit. It is a social space, full of life.

PARK HILL, SHEFFIELD

Landscape Design for Phase 2 of the iconic Park Hill development

Park Hill, Sheffield

Austin-Smith:Lord were appointed by Urban Splash in 2016 to design and deliver the Landscape Design for Phase 2 of the Park Hill project, working closely with London based architects Mikhail Riches.

Built between 1957 and 1961 by Sheffield City Council to replace slum terraces, Park Hill is one of the most ambitious and iconic developments of its type, famous for its ‘streets in the sky’. The building covers an area of 17 acres and contained around 1,000 flats. In total the whole estate covers 32 acres.

Phase 2 is the continuation of Urban Splash’s redevelopment of the estate which began in 2007, following decades of decline. It will provide 200 new homes and around 2,000m2 of mixed use commercial space, including offices, retail and cafes.

Much of the original iconic landscape infrastructure is still present and in redeveloping the landscape a light touch will be employed, respecting and working with existing terrace levels and retaining as much of the original retaining wall infrastructure as possible, stripping away the tired 1980s and 90s interventions.

The scheme includes comprehensive Public Realm improvements, creation of shared surface access routes, reorganising car parking, and the creation of a resident’s courtyard garden.

STOBHILL HOSPITAL MENTAL HEALTH FACILITIES

Landscape architects for public realm and secure external spaces for new units at Stobhill Hospital

Stobhill Hospital Mental Health Facilities

Austin-Smith:Lord LLP Glasgow were appointed by NHS GG&C/Hub West Scotland in November 2016 as landscape architects to deliver public realm and secure external spaces (courtyards & gardens) for the new Acute Admission Unit (AAU) and Hospital Based Complex Clinical Care Unit (CCC) at Stobhill Hospital.

The ambition for the New Mental Health Estate at Stobhill Hospital is to create a welcoming, caring and non-clinical environment.

The New Stobhill Hospital Mental Health Estate landscape will consist of:

PUBLIC REALM
The public spaces surrounding the new AAU & CCC buildings should enhance the new buildings’ setting whilst providing quality pedestrian connections to the main building entrances,

cycle parking and car parking (disabled and emergency) along the main building elevation.

SECURE EXTERNAL SPACES FOR PATIENTS, STAFF AND VISITORS (GARDENS & COURTYARDS):
It is widely acknowledged that contact with Nature helps with mental health issues and facilitates the healing process. The Gardens and Courtyards should therefore be designed to suit various patient needs and provide a practical and pleasant environment for patients and staff alike as well as a wide range of experiences and activities.

Although the AAU and CCC buildings are separate units, each accomodating patients with different needs, the brief requires that all external spaces should be futureproofed i.e. designed to suitable elderly/dementia-friendly standards in case the AAU unit needs to be converted into a CCC ward in the future.

MERTHYR TYDFIL LOWER HIGH STREET

Award-winning revitalisation of the area, with a new public square and integrated artwork

Merthyr Tydfil Lower High Street

The entrance to Merthyr Tydfil High Street was, by common consent, ill-defined, uninviting, traffic-choked and intimidating. Our challenge was to transform it into a café quarter; an open, welcoming community space that could serve as a focal point and allow people to come together, complementing our work in Merthyr to improve the River Taff Corridor.

We created a new square, making the public fundamental to the consultation process, so that not only would the result relate to, but be ‘owned by’ its users: vital for success. The walls blocking St Tydfil Church were replaced with a broad and visually arresting set of gently sloping steps – ideal for sitting. Vehicular access to the High Street was restricted.

Frontages were refurbished. Stunning paving brought a contemporary edge. The town’s history was referenced in bespoke bronze art: from street lamps and pavement panels to bollards and benches. Restaurants and cafes were designed and opened. The Lucy Thomas fountain, revealed and refurbished, turns a focus of vandalism into a focus of hope.

The new square has successfully hosted a continental market and an ‘Icetravaganza’ at Christmas, exactly the focus the Council were aiming for. The space thrives, people congregate, and the vandalism and graffiti, prevalent before, have all but ceased.

We are seeing an increased footfall, and this has done an awful lot to help us weather the recession and protect the town from its worst effects.

LIVERPOOL SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT

The new extension is a highly sustainable, BREEAM Excellent building.

University of Liverpool School of Management

The Management School at the University of Liverpool is successful and highly regarded. Student numbers are increasing rapidly. To meet this demand, Austin-Smith:Lord were commissioned in October 2013 to develop the management school to accommodate 450 additional students by re-organising and extending the existing facilities.

The project vision was to embrace modern methods of teaching in a state-of-the-art new facility that encourages collaborative and social learning. The accommodation also includes a case pit for debate and discussion and a trading floor.

The new extension is a highly sustainable, BREEAM Excellent building.

The University of Liverpool has a distinguished architectural history. The best buildings on the campus are confident expressions of their age. The pieces form a coherent whole by respecting the context. The vision for the new extension as the third component in the evolution of the Management School is to modernise, raise the profile and rebrand to meet market expectations.

LIVERPOOL CENTRAL LIBRARY

“It’s like going to meet your gran and finding she’s turned into Beyoncé’

Liverpool Central Library

The Liverpool Central Library and Archive Project is a unique and prestigious scheme within the heart of Liverpool’s World Heritage Site. The project provided a 8000m2 library and specialist archive and restored 4000m2 of Grade II* Listed historic buildings on William Brown Street.

A new 6-floor library, with an exciting atrium, gives the City of Liverpool a library for the 21st Century. The library connects to the historic Picton Library, the Hornby Library and Oak Room giving these areas a new lease of life and bringing them into public use.

A new archive repository provides storage for Liverpool’s most valuable collections and includes first class facilities for preservation and research.

HELENSBURGH TOWN CENTRE + ESPLANADE

Redesign of Colquhoun Square in the heart of the town centre, rejuvenation of all the principal surrounding streets and redevelopment of the West Bay Esplanade

Helensburgh Town Centre + Esplanade

The ambitious regeneration plans for Helensburgh were part of the Argyll and Bute Council CHORD initiative to improve economic activity in the town and enhance the visitor experience. Key aspects included the redesign of Colquhoun Square in the heart of the town centre, and redevelopment of all the principal surrounding streets and the West Bay Esplanade.

The design ethos was to create a town centre with attractive, usable and flexible public space thereby supporting community events, festivals and markets.

The town has held several successful events within their new square. These have attracted more people into the town centre and boosted trade for the local businesses, helping to support a sustainable economy.

The development of the ‘Outdoor Museum’ in Colquhoun Square has also provided a location and focus to display the rich and varied history of Helensburgh for local residents and visitors, both now and in the future.

I’m delighted with the quality of the work – the town centre looks fantastic….The project has seen a significant investment which will, I am sure, provide real, long lasting and tangible benefits to local people and businesses. We are already seeing significant private sector investment in the town and are hoping to use this project as a springboard to further growth.
Councillor Gary Mulvaney – chair of the Local Area Committee

The Austin Smith Lord design team which delivered the Helensburgh CHORD town centre and west bay esplanade public realm project for Argyll + Bute Council, acted professionally throughout the delivery of the project. Their senior management team was hands on and if there were any client concerns they quickly addressd them. The team are very client focussed, they respond quickly to requests for information and are willing to go the extra mile.
