Gardens in the Sky

← View all

A mixed residential and commercial scheme about to be submitted for planning.  An exposed, multi-faceted site needing a sensitive response to its exposed urban context; we designed a building with a strong public façade to engage with the street and to continue the rhythm of the existing parade of shops.  The individual flats puncture and connect with these elevations, whilst also creating secluded private spaces with raised gardens sewn with fruit trees and allotments, thereby creating a sense of nurture within an otherwise hard edged environment.
