Armel Mourgue is a highly experienced landscape and public realm designer with over 20 years’ experience in the design of award-winning UK and international projects. His versatile portfolio spans public realm regeneration, parks, residential, commercial and mixed-use projects, working across a range of scales and budgets.
Armel’s designs explore the notion of introducing contemporary public spaces within the historic fabric of our cities, facilitating human interaction and promoting cultural expression. Each of his designs draws inspiration from the local context, character, tradition, nature and history of a site.
He has a particular interest in the delivery of innovative elevated landscapes, being responsible for leading the designs of several unique sky gardens in London, including Crossrail Place Roof Garden, The Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street and the new Google Headquarters in King's Cross.
Armel manages the large team which is delivering the site-wide masterplan and subsequent phases for Elephant Park, the major regeneration of the Heygate Estate into a new green district in the heart of London, delivering around 2,500 new homes, shops and 11 acres of new public realm, including a central community park.
Armel is also a visiting lecturer at the University of Greenwich.
