Greening the City
Creating a permeable site with new public realm walkways and urban greening

The proposals were based within the Corporation of London Streetscene design guide to provide a series of high-quality paved pedestrian streets and new urban plaza. The tight urban site proved a challenge in terms of both space and light to provide a comfortable space and a planting scheme that would flourish. An innovative folding green wall system was proposed to provide landmark links and screening to the adjacent building, with the angled surfaces of the building reflecting light into the space.

Due to the challenging microclimate and reduced light, only a pair of small ornamental multistem trees were proposed on a feature raised planter in the larger central plaza space, to act as a landmark link. The concept landscape proposals supported a planning application by Allies & Morrison.
