Greenwich Square, Greenwich
A new high density mixed use neighbourhood has been created between Greenwich and Woolwich. Our landscape sits around contemporary iconic buildings that focus on a public piazza together with a series of residential streets. The landscape within the various spaces pays tribute to the past whilst celebrating the needs of today’s residential community. Its forms evoke the flowing shipping routes that started their journey from the local docks before making their way across the globe.
We are currently working on Block 3 and have designed the sculpture that sits in the piazza.
Heathside and Lethbridge, Lewisham
A new park in combination with communal gardens are at the heart of the regeneration of this 1200 unit estate valued at £270 million. In six phases the existing and ever increasing new residents have been consulted, leading to designs that are continually evolving, taking on board lessons learnt and new thinking. The park changes form and character from its source to its destination: from a hard and formal piazza through sculptural meadows and at the end – a dramatic woodland bowl, offering an exciting range of experiences and amenity for all age groups to enjoy.
