01 Our Vision

Our original landscape masterplan involved the restoration of the 19th century parkland and lakes, woodland shelterbelts and pleasure grounds, as well as the design of a contemporary landscape associated with the new buildings. We also created a number of smaller gardens, including the Sanger Courtyard which was designed as a stylised woodland glade, bringing nature into the ordered laboratory environment.

02 Our Process

We were first engaged to prepare a landscape masterplan to integrate new research and conference buildings into the grounds surrounding the Grade II* listed Hinxton Hall; we were subsequently employed to oversee ongoing maintenance at Hinxton. After a pause of several years RMA was appointed again, in 2009, to draw up plans for a subsequent phase of work in the South Field for the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) as well as the extension of the residential accommodation on the original site.

03 The Outcome

We’re proud to have been closely involved in the development of the Hinxton campus environment, which is highly rated by both visitors and the people who work there.
