Using Local Landscape Materials

We aim to create and sustain places that feel rooted in the landscape, that reflect and enhance the lives and pursuits of the people who inhabit them.

Plaster samples for a current project in Sussex. Blends of chalk, clays and plant fibres. We’ve been designing, making and using natural plasters for 15 years. Inspired by historic vernacular UK processes and traditional Japanese plasterwork, which is exquisite. #plasterwork #buildingcraft #landscapearchitecture #lwsjournal #localworksstudio ...

Happy volunteers! Some having "never held a drill in my life" went on to build this rather professional looking path at 'Wild About Barcombe' community wild space. They're planning to come back next week on their own to finish the job and are genuinely chuffed to have learnt a new skill. Could have got contractors in, but this is better. #lwsjournal ...
