Patrick Corfe Landscape Architects Ltd were involved in preparing concept plans for community consultation on the Coatesville Reserve, part of Rodney District Council. This masterplanning was followed through with a Stage One detailed design. The early priority was to establish an entrance and spill out area from the existing hall to be used for barbeques and other events.
PCLA design included the following elements: Extension of deck onto patio area with raised planters, pergola, and seating to provide spill over and outdoor area for functions. Design of formal entrance to fit in with existing and to include sponsored bricks as features. Sections of stone wall mark the entrances to the reserve. Rationalisation of site drainage and using stormwater detention pond. Planting designed to be in keeping with rural nature of site and to provide shade, and ecological value.
