Social spaces for Stratford’s Creative Quarter
The International Quarter in Stratford is a vibrant new neighbourhood where people and businesses can connect in new ways.
It provides a cutting edge working environment for the capital’s start-ups and creative entrepreneurs in the heart of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Securing the external works for the project was thrilling and we knew we’d have to deliver spaces that met the demands of its discerning inhabitants.
This landmark project layers workspaces with residences, and a diverse range of retail and culture opportunities with wide open spaces. Working with Lendlease, we did the works on hard and soft landscaping, providing plenty of street furniture and an amphitheatre. We also planted trees and installed drainage along with both in-situ and precast concrete retaining structures.
The open spaces we created successfully encourage movement and interaction with others, which was central to the design concept. Our works amplify the new neighbourhood’s focus on the building of a happier, healthier community for flexible working and cultural opportunities.
