The project creates a striking new entrance to Burgess Park, where playable sculpted landforms make the transition in scale between the urban blocks of the Aylesbury Estate and the more intimate space of Chumleigh Gardens and its listed almshouses. Wide paths rhythmically cut through a series of dramatic mounds and dips, leading to a new café forecourt with fountain jets, an under 5’s play area, and the park.

This contemporary civic space swept away what used to be a tangle of parking and site storage, invasive trees, polytunnels, and tipped debris. Landform was designed to incorporate spoil from this brownfield site, as part of the project’s sustainability strategy.
