B|D Landscape Architects：Glassfields是位于布里斯托尔圣殿区(Bristol’s Temple Quarter)的一个大型重建项目，业主为皇家伦敦资产管理公司 (RLAM) 。该开发项目由4个开发地块组成，正处于不同的建设阶段。
B|D Landscape Architects：Glassfields is a major redevelopment site located in Bristol’s Temple Quarter and is wholly owned by Royal London Asset Management (RLAM). The development comprises of 4 development plots which are being built out at different stages.
RLAM appointed B|D Landscape Architects in June 2020 to review the long term landscape scheme as well as develop a Meanwhile landscape to be situated at the centre of the site. The client foresaw that the staged development of the four plots might generate disruption to the completed plots 2 and 4. Plot 2 comprises The Distillery, a 90,000sq ft office space and Plot 4 comprises a 200 bed hotel with meeting rooms, coffee shop and gym.

It is considered that many of the public and private spaces in Bristol are solely or predominantly hard landscape and as such provide an austere and uninviting space to sit or use. It was therefore the client’s desire that Glassfields will provide a high quality and inviting public realm area that achieves a better blend of soft and green landscape that will encourage office staff and visitors to use the area. As a major development RLAM were also seeking to create a harmonised space which delivers a sense of place where people can sit, rest and enjoy. The location of the Meanwhile Park has therefore been carefully considered, being located centrally within the site with clear access from adjacent pedestrian routes as well as from the adjoining Hotel and offices. Therefore maximising the impact of the landscape on an otherwise brownfield site.
The Meanwhile Park provides flexible space for small pop-up events and maximises the visual impact of soft and hard landscape materials so to create a vibrant central space. The vision for Glassfields has been inspired by local character with the site being located adjacent to the historic Gardener Haskins building. The landscape design aimed to connect with both the history and future of Glassfields and help to define and reactivate the landscape while the remaining plots are built out.

The scheme gained planning permission in March 2021 and was completed in the November. The vision for Glassfields from concept to completion can clearly be seen within the Meanwhile Park which has transformed a brownfield site into a place where people want to pause and dwell in.

可持续方法 Sustainable Approach
我们与Wildflower Turf Ltd.合作，建立了一种适合在Glassfields茁壮生长的野花草皮，只需引入最少的土壤(表层土壤深度为150mm)。观赏植物区的设计远离了现有的地下设施，并设置在其视觉效果最佳的地方，靠近酒店和中央的灵活空间。同时，倾斜的堤岸设置在中心的弧形长椅后方，减少了需要从现场清移的土方量。
As a formerly industrial landscape and today a live construction site, the Glassfields Meanwhile Park did not present favourable conditions for introducing planting. Compacted soil, rubble and existing below ground services meant the site would require imported soil and improvement works in order to sustain ornamental planting. We wanted to promote sustainable development as well as minimise construction activity so to avoid noise and air pollution which might impact on the experiences of hotel guests and office workers. Further to this we looked to avoid importing large quantities of soil; helping us to achieve our sustainability goals.
We worked with Wildflower Turf Ltd. to establish a suitable wildflower turf that would thrive at Glassfields with minimal imported soil – 150mm depth of topsoil. Ornamental planting areas were designed away from existing below ground services and where their impact would be felt most – against the hotel and central flexible space. Whilst sloping banks set behind the curved benches at the centre reduced the amount of soil to be removed from site.

感官植物 Sensory Plant Species
Glassfields forms an urban oasis for visitors, the success of which is due to the way the design connects people with nature. The design incorporates meandering paths with seating places which are enveloped by ornamental planting and wilflower meadows. The central flexible space is enclosed by sensory planting banks.
The ornamental planting palette includes species with known sensory values. Such as, Lavandula angustifolia and Salvia officinalis for smell, Verbena bonariensis for movement and the wildflower meadows encourage a sense of touch as visitors brush past.
回收材料 Reclaimed Materials
“Glassfields项目使用的木材是从韦茅斯港回收的一种樟木。最初，这些垂直堆积的水平木材形成了港口或码头。我们从一家位于多塞特的填海公司购买了长9米、截面为400×400的木材，木材有4米左右被打入海港的粘土中，保存完好，因此我们用这部分来制作长椅。回收公司说它已有100年的历史，且木材是经过手工处理的。在岸线上的木材部分已经磨损得十分严重，这一部分后来用在了另一个项目中。唯一还没有使用的部分也毫无疑问将会在某个时候用到它。” 来自什罗普郡Chris Nangle Furntiure的Chris Nangle。
“The timber used for the Glassfields project was reclaimed Greenheart timber from Weymouth harbour. Originally this would have been vertical piled horizontal timbers to form the harbour or piers. We purchased 9 meter long 400×400 sections from a Dorset based reclamation company, the first 4 meters or so had been driven into the clay of the harbour and this is the section we used for the benches as it was as good as the day it went in. The reclamation company says it was 100 years old, on the second image you can see the timber has been hand dressed. The top section that had been in the tide line was quite worn; we later used this on another project. The only sections we have not used are the spike ends, no doubt we will find a use at some point.” Chris Nangle of Chris Nangle Furntiure, Shropshire.
We chose to work with Chris as we believed his furniture provides a sustainable approach to landscape design. Reclaimed timber has many aesthetic values as well as being highly durable. The benches are intended to be reused in the final scheme for the Glassfields development.

照明设计 Lighting Design
定制的灯柱是公园标识和照明策略的重要组成部分，它们在图克斯伯里的B|D工作室中设计出来，并最终在Glassfields方案中安装落地。这些立柱由Rank工程公司在当地制造，采用镀锌钢制成，表面涂有烟灰色 (RAL 7016) 粉末涂层。位于入口处的醒目立柱标志着主要的入口，并通过垂直背光字体强调照明。
Bespoke elements for improved wayfinding and sense of place. The lighting design of the meanwhile masterplan has been carefully considered from the early concept design stage. Ensuring the public realm provides a safe and navigable space for users is essential to its success as well as reducing risk the of anti social behaviour within the area.
The bespoke lighting columns form an essential component in the meanwhile wayfinding and lighting strategy. Designed in house at the B|D Studio in Tewkesbury and are designed to be relocated within the final Glassfields scheme. Manufactured locally by Rank Engineering, the columns are made using galvanised steel with a powder coated finish in Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016). Located at the entrances the columns bold identify key entrances and provide statement lighting through vertical back lit text.
“Glassfields has been a real design journey for me, seeing this former Brownfield site transformed would not have been possible without a collaborative approach. From the initial discussions with the client through to the design process and then onto the construction detailing. The final landscape represents a core vision – to revitalise a former industrial site, offset the impacts of construction and ultimately invite people in! Glassfields is a much needed green oasis and I am proud to have been part of the story!” Catrin Menzies Landscape Architect
