View Project Intro

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 vertical planted surfaces and a major street tree planting programme.

A realignment to the street edge provides several conservatory spaces 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 ARUP 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 metalwork.
