Competition: 2001 – Short listed Runners-up
Following submission of an Expression of Interest we were selected from approximately 70 entries to submit design proposals as one of five shortlisted finalists.
Our proposal avoided existing trees to provide views to the horizon from the pool by cutting it into the steeply sloping hillside creating a garden terrace above.
The key theme was to elevate the experience of the extraordinary landscape setting through orchestrated views to the distant landscape, into canopies of nearby trees and the changing play of direct sunlight on natural material surfaces.s including the £85 million regeneration of Crystal Palace Park, and a £10 million mixed use development in Romford.
