Fira created a unique and tranquil setting for those working on this Ministry of Defence campus. The design allows people to connect with, and enjoy their natural surroundings
The 25 acre campus development on this derelict airfield includes offices, a technical building, Sergeant’s Mess, crèche facilities and car parking at the north site of the DLO Andover base.
This extensive site was carefully assessed for its ecological value and steps undertaken to ensure that the chalk downland habitats were conserved and enhanced.
The masterplan expands on the geometry of the architecture to create routes to connect the campus buildings. The landscape provides a formal setting for the various buildings with an entrance plaza and semi-mature tree planting defining the major ceremonial spaces, and highlighting main pedestrian routes.
