She is a masterplanner and designer with over 38 years’ experience of designing and delivering large and complex projects. Jane is particularly experienced in the design of the healing landscape for healthcare having worked on some of the largest and most complex healthcare projects in the UK.
Jane is passionate about the psychological and physical benefits that quality landscape design and nature play in all aspects of the public realm. She is a pioneering exponent of evidence-based design and ‘green place-making’, the importance of health and wellbeing in the way that people experience our urban environment and the spaces we create within, around, and connecting places.
Her interest in multifunctional green infrastructure is reflected in her design work. Whether it is creating new settlements, transportation systems, places to work and learn, or campus design, her philosophy is to lead with the green to create places that address climate change, that are climate resilient, biodiverse and are healthy.
