QUEENS COURT

Milton Keynes

Queens Court is an external open public space which is part of Milton Keynes’ central retail building known as thecentre:mk. Its redevelopment creates a new destination space for eating, performance events, markets and exhibitions and revitalises the shopping centre.

A new fully-glazed link building, or winter gardens, connects the two main pedestrian shopping arcades, and new high-quality food retail spaces and restaurants are introduced. These open into the winter gardens and out onto the re-landscaped external courtyard. New stone paving, lighting, a raised pool, benches and a grove of flowering cherry trees create a vibrant new public realm.
