The redevelopment of the forecourt of Sherston Court meant that it could be used by the local community as a shared spaceand visual amenity. The needs and aspirations of the residents shaped the design which includes an expansive manicured lawn, colour planting, and buffer hedges completed with a residents’ garden. The built form that shapes this space led to a planting design that responds to the micro-climate and provides a sanctuary for the residents adjacent to London Road.

The project was completed in 2017 for a modest budget under London Borough of Southwark’s Cleaner, Greener, Safer programme.
