One Hyde Park

Located in the heart of Knightsbridge, overlooking London’s Hyde Park, One Hyde Park is a collection of luxurious apartments and duplexes set within beautiful sculpted landscapes.

View Project Details

The project consists of a series of luxury apartments across four pavilions above a continuous ground floor retail area. Gillespies designed the landscaping to provide a link between the park and street scene through the use of vertical planted surfaces as well as a major street tree planting programme.

A realignment to the street edge provides a number of conservatory spaces within the development that facilitate direct access to the retail areas. Continuity of paving treatments and an innovative planting palette including trees suspended within a pool of water aim to make these welcoming and dynamic public spaces.

Tailoring the design to accommodate the existing mature trees called for a range of innovative structural solutions including an ultra slim road deck developed with Arups structural engineers and designed to span over the existing root zone.

The team collaborated with a series of commissioned artists on the exterior areas including James Turrell on lighting and Wendy Ramshore on metal work.
