What we did



Ilford, Greater London

Our vision for the Ilford Western Gateway competition is of an exemplary place of arrival and connection - a gateway into Ilford as a 21st century town centre.

Within the multidisciplinary team, landscape has been central to the space positive approach to urban design, that focuses on creating characterful streets and spaces first before exploring built form.

The vision breaks down road barriers and through its new public spaces the site connects the High Road, Crossrail Station, Cultural quarter, river Roding and local neighbourhoods. This will transform Ilford, creating a safer, accessible, sustainable and better-connected place.

The substantial greening of the Western Gateway site provides doorstep access to nature for Ilford’s residents with the creation of a playful urban forest whilst the new Station Square and Community Square provide opportunities to meet, play and learn. The imagined public spaces create a setting for social interaction, to share and celebrate Ilford’s cultural diversity.
