GARDEN MUSEUM – LAMBETH GREEN
Publica is working with the landscape designer Dan Pearson Studio on urban design ideas for the Garden Museum, the only museum dedicated to the art and design of gardens in Britain. Its home in the former church of St. Mary-at-Lambeth, one of the oldest buildings in the borough close to the banks of the Thames and Lambeth Palace, speaks to the rich history of the area.
Building on Transport for London (TfL)’s current proposals for a new road layout at Lambeth Bridge, the project aims to create a series of green civic spaces linking into the wider neighbourhood. Ideas include extensive tree planting, a new public garden space, landscaping of the streetscape and the Embankment walkway, as well as a new entrance sequence enhanced by an inhabited wall and accessed through a modern a lych gate.
The design seeks to reinvigorate the historic heart of Lambeth, adding trees and planting to the urban environment, improving the public realm for the benefit of local residents and visitors to the area.
The initial concept design was launched on 8th November 2018 in an event at the Garden Museum.
