Landscape planning and design in a residential dockland development

Coburg Dock is one of a number of key projects undertaken by ASH as part of the regeneration of the prestigious Liverpool waterfront and Docklands. Coburg Dock comprises a flagship residential development which, in conjunction with the neighbouring marina, has provided a focus for subsequent development.

What we did

ASH was commissioned by Amey Hynd to work with the project architect, Backhouse Design Ltd, to identify a site plan responsive to:

  • The riverside location
  • The prevailing exposed climate
  • The significance of the proposal as a lead development for the area

The Coburg Dock design focuses on the establishment of a predominantly communal urban landscape with minimal private space or maintenance.

The result has been the creation of a site plan that maximises shelter in the key circulation and access spaces, and that utilises robust materials and hard detail reflecting the scale and strength of the site's dockland origins.
