SCOPE   A new development of 150 homes in Rotherhithe. The site is adjacent to the Russia Dock Woodland, a well-loved urban green way. The commission included the consideration of the old Fisher Athletic Football Ground which involved extensive consultation.

PROPOSAL   The proposal looks to capture the essence of the sites previous history as a working dockyard, through creation of a collection of public and private spaces to accommodate residents’ needs.  The tree strategy is central to the design, where trees are used as navigational and orientation aids by mixing species over the site.
