Citypoint Plaza

View all projects

Part of a longer term vision to revitalise Citypoint, a 1960s-era tower in the Square Mile, this project reinvigorates its public realm, opening up views and routes from the surrounding streets and providing a clearer focus towards the main entrance of the tower. It also introduces furniture and planting that provides an appealing, human scaled place to spend time in, have a coffee or eat lunch, as well as better lighting and signage that improve wayfinding. The layout minimises the number of bollards required to maintain security, and incorporates power, data and water provision to facilitate all manner of events.
