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
Wynne Williams Associates has been working with Kier Construction on a new three and a half storey secondary school building at Bitterne Park School since 2015. The project is well under way on site with the build phase planned to complete this spring.
The EFA-funded scheme is part of a programme of expansion of secondary school places in Southampton which will see the school grow from 1,500 to 1,800 pupils. The school have continued to occupy their existing building while the new one has been constructed. Once they move in summer 2017 the old building will be demolished and a new sports pitch built in its place. This allows a clean transition, as well as providing them with up to date teaching facilities and sports provision. Read more

In October we welcomed a group of landscape and garden design degree students from Writtle University College, Chelmsford, to the offices of Wynne-Williams Associates. We have a close relationship with the College and we appreciate these opportunities to meet new landscape designers and to contribute to their course. (A quick look at our People page will show that most of our team have either trained or lectured at the College and Gill Wynne-Williams chairs the College’s Landscape Institute Accreditation Committee.)
