In addition to transforming the Creative Campus, Angel Field has also received national acclaim, in the form of a number of awards and commendations.
Project of the Year, 'Red Rose Award' and Landscape Award
“The Creative Campus has been completed by this outstanding public space which links a series of otherwise disparate buildings across a serene and playful garden.
“Conceived by a determined and knowledgeable client with a clear vision, it has been realised by an imaginative designer determined to deliver on that vision. Built to an exceptional standard of finish, it is a soft and welcome delight. A place you will want to return to again and again. (RIBA Judges’ comment)
“Beautifully crafted, subtle, multi-layered, and therapeutic.”
“This is a landscape that encourages use and enjoyment in all manner of ways and at all times of the year.”
“The contrast with the denuded public realm which surrounds the site could not be greater. Here you can rest, meet, watch performances, have your graduation photo taken, or just enjoy walking through the landscape which transforms your expectations of what is possible in such a challenging location.”
“The series of external rooms formed by the mature yew hedges address different facets of the surrounding university buildings, tying them together and extending the visual context across the adjoining collegiate school there by opening up an invitation to enjoy this space.” (RIBA Judges’ comment [Landscape Award])
“The transformation of place has managed to create another world without turning its back upon its neighbours.
“A world that brings order to the random forms of its context and literally tells stories through enigmatic text built into the stone benches. (RIBA Judges’ comment [Project of the Year])
