Research, new ideas, understanding of the issues facing the landscape design sector are key to how we want to develop the portfolio and design ethos of our company. Last week one half of the Esterni Design Partnership attended an excellent talk at the Winchester Discovery Centre, Hampshire, UK. The speaker was Kim Wilkie, a distinguished and respected local landscape architect. The speaker identified a relationship between history, intended as the traces left on the landscape by human habitation over the centuries, and his practice's design philosophy and work.
Hampshire has a tradition of grand homes with large green parks that are now being updated, in some cases re-working original plans by Capability Brown. One of the private estates described was a particularly good interpretation of how we can adapt our present needs and aesthetic with frameworks inherited from the past.
