The Phoenix Moves Forward

Our three-year collaboration with Human Nature and some of the UK’s brightest Architects, Engineers and designers came to fruition yesterday as the South Downs National Park Planning Committee granted unanimous approval for The Phoenix masterplan including the detail of the first phase.

It has been a long and winding road that started at the tail end of the pandemic requiring navigation of the necessary protections afforded to the National Park, the local historic context, contamination, flooding and viability to name but a few. The result really does point the way to a, more equitable, climate conscious and regenerative future. We really can live better.

Periscope's role is the Masterplan Design Lead, coordinating the Integrated Design Team of Human Nature Places and ARUP. We are also designing the public realm & landscape, the adaptive reuse of two heritage structures and the Co-Mobility Hub.
