David Keary, from Leicester primarily based Keary Coles Design wins the Battersea Park Promontory Design Competitors. Organised by LANDSCAPE, the commerce present for the landscaping business, and Wandsworth Council, designers had been requested to take a look at a beforehand unused space of the park and make it accessible to the general public.
Senior Choose Jerry Birtles, Chief Parks Officer for Wandsworth Council mentioned:
“Big because of LANDSCAPE for contacting us within the first occasion and to everybody who took half and submitted a design. We had been impressed by the standard of all of the entries and located it very exhausting to decide on. I realise this will likely look like us “spouting the standard line” but it surely was certainly troublesome to decide on. Every design had its personal robust factors, which saved prompting ideas of “ah, however, this one’s acquired…
Nonetheless, ultimately we needed to decide and we selected David Keary’s design. We prefer it’s easy, however robust strains, with the trail widening in a sweep down the river frontage. We expect it makes one of the best of the promontory’s location to present actually good viewing factors up, down and throughout the river and in selecting to match the seats to our current designs. We appreciated that consideration had been given to creating the exhausting areas giant sufficient to have potential to accommodate modest organised occasions. The sculpted mounds which assist outline the backyard are giant sufficient to take action with out being too “intrusive”. And, though they might have to be tailor-made right here and there as regards top to accommodate one of the best of the present timber, we really feel that is readily achievable with none actual compromise to the design. The planting benefit from a fairly shaded web site, meets the necessities of being consistent with the

Victorian heritage of the park, and notably might be a comparatively modest burden as regards upkeep – which for us is a elementary requirement.
General, we thought that many of the designs ticked many of the containers, David Keary’s ticked only one greater than the others.”
Congratulations to David Keary, who will now be in discussions with the Buddies of Battersea Park

and Wandworth Council in an effort to convey the design to completion.
The LANDSCAPE present returns to Battersea Park on the 23rd & 24th of September 2014.
