Project details

Spearheading urban renewal with a new piazza and gardens.

We refined the brief by consulting the client, the local population and all other stakeholders.

Our design comprised a series of ‘character zones’ that included a piazza-style town square for socialising, events and market stalls, plus gardens with children’s play area and lawns.

We also freed the river from its concrete channel, incorporated it into the site, and encouraged native flora and fauna to flourish.

Our high-quality pedestrian and cycle lanes link to and from the town centre, while the entire scheme benefits from new art, lighting and signage.

A trail-blazing project that's kick-starting a true renaissance for Lewisham.
