Morphis launch new UK studio
From 1st December 2017, award-winning landscape practice Morphis have complemented their Hong Kong and Shanghai operations with a new UK design studio. Based in Hampshire, the studio will give the practice a foothold close to collaborators in London in order to work on key projects in the UK and Middle East.
The studio is led by award winning landscape architect Nick Bailey, Director, and Nicole Yip, Associate. Nick is excited to bring to the UK some of the more innovative urban design approaches the practice has explored. ‘Through a combination of landscape strategies and experiential design, we have implemented solutions that are sustainable and socially responsive, incorporating flood level management, water re-use, urban heat island reduction, hydroponics, virtual reality and interactive technology. Adapting some of these initiatives to the evolving needs of the UK’s urban regeneration agenda will further connect people with natural systems.'
Mark Blackwell, Managing Director, explains 'We are currently collaborating with a number of London-based architects and engineers to create integrated, sustainable developments of varying scale. The UK’s considerable pool of landscape talent will allow us to augment our cosmopolitan team of creative thinkers, innovators and designers, exploring the intersection of city, society and nature around the world.’
