Planet Earth’s large scale planning and design work focuses on new towns and regeneration that maximize user amenity, ecology and sustainable natural systems. Our dedication to research and creativity result in highly site specific schemes.
A brief introduction to three of our projects:
Xiangshan, Zhejiang, China
The 60 Hectare public landscape riverside site serving the residential and industrial mixed use area in Xiangshan, China deploys innovative planting and access techniques promoting interaction with the natural environment. Dense tree planting based on matrices derived from the surrounding outcrops creates an ecological carbon sink; woodland is peppered with intimate lawn and flower spaces to explore. A rich environment, expansive with multitudes of human scale spaces within, was achieved within a remarkably low budget.
Xichuang, Henan Province, China
Planet Earth Ltd were engaged to masterplan the regeneration of the 140 Hectare riverside site centrally located in the city of Xichuang. The plan integrates contemporary and projected future urban requirements with local and regional culture, green/blue infrastructure and well distributed public parks, cycle lanes and public transport.
DaMuWan Eco Town, Zhejiang Province, China
The brief for the new eco-town river system prioritized flood capacity, water cleansing and amenity. Planet Earth secured the tender by going beyond the brief equally foregrounding ecology with habitat creation and with the skillful integration of user amenity and aesthetics with the bio-remediation strategies .
