The Client: Brent Council Parks Service, London.

The Brief: Public park for a green deficiency area in NW London, based on a Chelsea Flower Show garden which was given to the people of Brent to encourage the study of ecology and wildlife and as a place for local residents to relax.

Concept Design: We kept in mind the request for low maintenance and affordable management of the space, together with the importance of sustainability. The reed beds in the large pond work as a natural cleaning agent for the water and the gravel beach provides easy access for collecting water samples and wildlife.
