Urban Wilderness were commissioned to assess the landscape surrounding the Designer Outlet to the south of York and to put forward a strategy of public realm improvements that would unify and revistalise the site’s character, enhance the outlets image and which would improve visitor experience all year round.
The strategy identified under-used and / or under-valued landscape spaces across the estate and put forward options for their development.
“Landscape plays a crucial role to the way in which visitors experience and interact with a site. It shapes their perception of quality, it can guide them to key entrance points or important landmarks and leaves an impression on departing. We feel very privileged to be able to help shape visitor experience at the Designer Outlet York. ”
