WWA Managing Director, Gill Wynne-Williams, gave a talk at the Alliance of Construction Networks (ACN) annual conference in London last November. Along with Daniel Knott, an Associate at BuroHappold Engineering, Gill was asked to address the question “How do we design for passive & active external environments?”. The pair presented a range of project case studies illustrating different approaches to designing external spaces. This was followed by a joint Q&A session which allowed audience members to explore the theme further with specific reference to their own field. Read more
The recently completed wildlife garden at Dulwich Hamlet Junior School has been very well received by staff and students. A whole range of learning experiences have centred around habitat piles, pondlife containers and planting to encourage biodiversity. Read more
As the demand for BIM compliant projects increases, Wynne-Williams Associates have taken the decision to switch to Vectorworks software. This will give us the capability to design collaboratively with other professionals to BIM Level 2. Read more
We recently completed a car park extension scheme for the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich. The grade II* listed art gallery and museum was designed by Norman Foster and is host to regular national and international exhibitions. It is a prominent feature of the parkland landscape at the University of East Anglia.
The Centre struggled to provide enough visitor parking, especially during temporary exhibitions when numbers can increase by over 200 per day. We were asked to study the problem and provide a solution which was sensitive to the setting of the building. It was also a requirement that our proposals get approval from Foster and Partners, who have ongoing input into all aspects relating to the Sainsbury Centre. Read more
Our three master’s students exhibited their final projects as part of the Writtle University College MA Degree Show this week.

Our graduate landscape designer and part-time master’s student, Tom Johnson, recently attended a talk organised by RIBA to discuss the future role of green infrastructure in landscape design. The panel debate, held at the ALUK design studio in London, was part of the ‘Cities’ series which sought to explore solutions to the challenges that cities will face in the near future.
Two of our part time master’s students, Lucy Nicholls and Bobby Browne, have just returned from a study tour to Budapest with Writtle College. The four day tour included visits to the newly designed Lagymanyosi Bay Park, the Arboretum at Szent István University, the historic sites and diverse urban design in the city, and studying the relationship between the River Danube and surrounding city. The trip also provided a good opportunity to sample the famous thermal baths, food and drink of Budapest! Read more
In 2015 we won a tender to design the grounds of a new secondary tuition centre in Enfield. It is now getting near time for our design to be built – always an exciting point in a project.
Secondary Tuition Centres are for children who have either been excluded from their school or who are at risk of being so. Orchardside Centre is a new building on the site of a former plant nursery and garden centre on Bullsmoor Lane in Enfield. It is close to Capel Manor College, a nationally-famous horticultural college, and is in a conservation area. Read more
