Working in partnership with Oxford University's Estates Services, LDA's plan will link medical research facilities and create attractive, high quality outdoor spaces with dedicated areas for staff and students to enjoy.

The redevelopment of the 6.4ha site will create state-of-the-art research and teaching resources. The landscape spaces are being designed to integrate the existing and future buildings into a strong landscape framework.

Dafydd Warburton, associate at LDA Design, said: "A world-class facility needs a public realm to match. The landscape masterplan seeks to seamlessly integrate the new building plots into a high quality landscape setting.

"A network of pedestrian focused streets and spaces integrated with the mature landscape setting are proposed to create an exceptional research environment.

Also working on the design are MAKE Architects, CPC as project manager, engineers PBA, Hoare Lee for monitoring and evaluation, Arcadis as quality surveyor and Pell Frischmann for infrastructure and transport engineering.
