Whilst at BDP, Sally developed a new landscape masterplan to complement the proposed arts college. The form and scale of the social and outdoor performance spaces celebrates the striking architectural elevations. The geometric pattern lends itself to a variety of outdoor spaces from performance to intimate social niches for the pupils. The landform also creates enclosure forming several mounds which echoing the schools internal ‘hills’. The scheme strengthens links between indoor and outdoor spaces so that the internal worship pod flows out onto the Salesian faith garden.
