Prospect Farm, Swanage


This new development in Swanage set in the stunning Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Dorset AONB) includes 20 new dwellings, including 7 affordable homes and 13 detached homes.

Our design approach to this scheme was to connect the proposed development with the site and surrounding landscape. The aim was to focus the design on the green spaces and to replicate the Dorset AONB with native biodiverse planting.


The design includes a soft palette of hard landscaping materials selected to mirror the architecture and blend in with the surrounding landscape. The planting scheme required thoughtful design to meet ecology and mitigation requirements. The use of native hedging surrounding the site was used to reduce the visual impact of the development. The planting throughout the site consists of a mixture of low evergreen shrubs, carefully selected perennials to provide seasonal interest and textured evergreen grasses.
