Dunelm is a fast expanding soft furnishings retailer with over 90 stores across the UK. Dunelm required a new headquarters that provides excellent working conditions for its staff with a pleasant external environment to match. Landscape proposals were key to creating a soft and welcoming setting for the building.
FPCR were appointed to provide landscape design services for the scheme at Syston in Leicestershire, which was completed in 2011.
The building is set within a comprehensive landscaped setting which incorporates native hedgerows and trees around the site perimeter, tree planting to the car park and central courtyard planted with trees and shrubs. The quality landscape has proved essential in providing structure and detail to the grain of the development, whilst also enhancing biodiversity and creating a pleasant environment in which to work.
