Gloucestershire Primary Care NHS Trust proposed the construction of a new combined Community Hospital and Group GP surgery to replace existing separate facilities. The site was an agricultural field which lies within the Cotswolds AONB and outside the defined development boundary of Moreton-in-Marsh.
The design concept:
Provide positive contribution to this key ‘entrance’ to Moreton-in-Marsh
Planting, groundworks and boundary treatments designed to assimilate new buildings in both near and distant views
Included design of ‘gateway’ entrance using Cotswold stone walls, native hedges and woodland planting
Staff, visitor and physiotherapy gardens
Comprehensive SuDS scheme integrated within site design, including permeable paving, swales, wetlands, detention and retention ponds
