This year our office Christmas outing started with us being locked in a room having been given a one hour deadline for solving a problem. A bit like some days at work in a landscape architecture office perhaps – except for the locking in bit! This was Cluequest: a set of puzzles to be solved to complete a task and find how to unlock our room again. We all enjoyed it a lot, and the mental exercise gave us a healthy appetite for our Christmas meal that evening at the German Gymnasium restaurant near Kings Cross, London.
We’ve just got our Christmas tree at the office. And, as is a tradition, it is the most recent recruit who gets the task of decorating it! Here is Bobby Browne, who joined us this summer, standing proud by his handiwork. Read more

The Malings housing scheme next to the Ouseburn river in Newcastle-upon-Tyne has been named the Supreme Winner in the 2016 Housing Design Awards.
Wynne-Williams Associates contributed planting and arboricultural design to the scheme. A feature of the planting and gardens around the site is a sustainable drainage scheme using terraced gardens and a feature rain garden next to the river.
Congratulations to Ash Sakula architects who led the overall design of the housing scheme on winning this prestigious award.

We were particularly pleased to be selected by a partnership of local people to support the North Meets South project because they have ownership of the initiatives that will benefit their neighbourhood.
