Hoxton Square

Hackney, London

30

Hoxton square is a vibrant and busy garden in East London bordered by bars, restaurants, offices, apartments, a school and an art gallery. A wide spectrum of people enjoy using the space for an equally wide variety of activities, which had taken its toll on the presentation of the garden.

Earle Architects was appointed, following success in a competitive bid, to head a team of designers to rejuvenate the square and oversee works which took place over an ambitious 8 week period.

We delivered new hard surface treatments, additional litter bins, extra seating, restoration works to the central fountain (dating from 1901), a new power supply to allow the square to play host to special events and, working with Onefield landscape designers, a new soft landscaping design.
