The design for Napier plaza roots itself in place by looking to both the natural and historical elements specific to Rye.
The scheme arranges itself according to elements such as:
Wind and solar movement (manifests in windbreak arrangement and seating locations)
the coastal water and sand movements (manifests in paving patterning and colour palette choice)
coastal ecologies (manifests in plant palette and colour palette)
as well as Rye’s particular histories (manifests in paving patterning and material choices)
In so doing, the scheme presents a responsive and appropriate design.
