Public square and gateway designs for first phase of a 35ha development of housing, hotel and retail on the Medway.
The pubic square borrows from its past with dramatic lines of specimen grass alongside a stream course with a central ‘beach’ area. The concept is angular with cranked sculptural lights and angled grass mounds.
Gateways are celebrated with arcs of fastigiate trees and a light sculpture in a tunnel with railway arches each side brought into use. The colour changing light sculpture, set in the floor, pulsates as it appears to run through towards the river.
