A generous public realm and carefully considered landscape strategy is at the heart of Mountfield Park. The development is arranged as six residential clusters, each one a series of courts with an orchard landscape focus at the heart of each grouping. Alongside public squares and civic-scale spaces, the enclosed, domestic scale of the architecture creates a sequence of intimate, semi-private spaces and private gardens, with high qualirty planting, paving and landscaping.
