Sayer Street, Elephant Park

On a strip of land 4m wide, with one side backing onto Elephant Park and the other side facing high-rise housing with retail at ground floor, the purpose of the development to generate a sense of a street has been comprehensively achieved.

The lightweight timber structures minimise embodied carbon, minimise foundation work, provide appropriate structural function and maximise visual effect. The development has been highly successful: it provides space for small retail outlets and 24-hour seating areas which benefit the bas and restaurants opposite, and has greatly increased footfall along Sayer Street.
