Modern Architecture ignites the senses for beauty.

Petershill,

City of London

 

This predominantly hard landscape scheme and network of open spaces was designed by Terra Firma Principal Lionel Fanshawe while a senior Landscape Architect at Charles Funke Associates in the early 1990’s (and was completed with some on-going subconsultancy from him after joining Terra Firma).

 

An important much used (and much acclaimed) processional route linking St. Paul’s to what was later to become the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern, the design had to meet a highly complex set of objectives.

 

This included multi-directional and disabled access over large level changes which also needed to take into account car parking headroom beneath. These were met with a solution intended to be striking in its detail and uncluttered simplicity.
