Arsenal Greenspace Project Sheet

Arsenal Green Space

The open space design is the product of significant consultation with the local residents and school children alongside the Local Authority’s many works departments including the arborocultural, horticultural, safety and access officers, planning, legal, lighting and urban design teams. The key purpose of the scheme is to provide a shared amenity space for the 125 new-build residential flats, and to create a green oasis in an otherwise hard inner city landscape.

One of the key requirements from existing residents was the concept of creating a sense of domesticand organic garden in an urban setting. The design therefore contains a series of horticultural ‘fields’ and natural screens which, when established, will augment the sensory experience of the square through their changing foliage, shape, smell and structure.
