Project details

BDP has breathed new life into Weston’s urban heart space creating a revitalised town square and Italian Gardens.

The inspiration for the design concept was drawn from the Town’s coastal location, historic association with Marconi’s radio telegraph system and the adjacent Calamine mining industry. The new iconic public space is characterised by a high quality and durable palette of hard and soft landscaping which is central to creating a new identity for the Weston’s public realm, seeking to cement the town’s identity firmly in the public’s mind.
