Our design for the new landscape and public realm, developed in close collaboration with architects Morris + Co, creates a new public park at the heart of the scheme. The proposals were positively received by councillors and local residents alike gaining approval from London Borough Tower Hamlets. In addition to the park the scheme aims to transform the streetscape, in coordination with LBTH’s Liveable Streets initiative to significantly transform the area for existing and new communities. An identity for the space was quickly developed including wayfinding totem, seating elements, SuDs, tree planting and a play terrace offering a variety of play that sinuously continues the sculptural language of the park.
Further to a flurry of recent planning approvals, our neighbouring scheme at 30 Marsh wall has also gained consent from Tower Hamlets. Working closely with EPR Architects, the proposal seeks to consider the two development sites forming a holistic approach to provide legible access and improve the area as a whole. Consequently, a variety of spaces differing in character and function emerged including, a publically accessible pocket park between Marsh Wall down to Cuba St, improvements to on street parking in coordination with LBTH Liveable Streets initiative and amenity terrace for residents.
