ACTIVATION, RE-POPULATION + VEGETATION
245 Hammersmith Road has been a substantial commercial headquarters since the 1980s, and currently EA are working to transform an outdated raised platform into a outdoor working environment and sociable and usable public space. Two new public spaces are created with the project, which extends office space into an elevated green oasis behind the street front. A sloping lawn provides space for events, concerts and performances, while a funicular entices passers-by to move through the refreshed public realm and join in with the activities offered above street level. The Plaza area to Hammersmith Road will create a new gateway into the development whilst improving permeability to a new row of ground floor commercial properties through the existing planting beds and trees.
