We’re delighted to announce that one of our urban schemes has been awarded the national title in the 2021 European Green Cities Competition. You can read more about why it was voted as the national winner here.
Dublin Landings is a new, mixed-use urban development at North Wall Quay, Dublin. The scheme involved input from multiple Irish design practices with the landscape package developed by Bernard Seymour Landscape Architects, but was installed and maintained by us. The landscape includes extensive and unusual planting, mature trees, roof gardens, raised planters, courtyards and plaza areas. The scheme has been entered as it marks a new benchmark in urban landscape design, investment, complexity, and construction. In an Irish context, it marks a transition from low value, utility planting to the creation of high-quality liveable green spaces. It reflects a maturing of attitudes, expectations, and knowledge in relation to the role played by plant material in underpinning the social, economic and environmental fabric of urban life.
Green Cities Europe is an initiative by the ENA (European Nurserystock Association) and nursery organisations in Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and Sweden.
