St Luke’s Gardens
With Project Centre’s experience of working with sensitive historic and natural environments, our landscape architects were commissioned to restore and refurbish the Grade 2 listed St Luke’s Gardens in Chelsea.
We had to secure Faculty Jurisdiction from the Diocese of London and planning permission from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Our plans included:
- new gates and railings, in keeping with the existing Georgian boundary wall
- two new sports pitches
- a new children’s playground
- an older children’s play area and social space
- resurfacing footpaths
- a new amenities building
The new elements were sensitively designed to be appropriate with the existing character of the gardens, replicating where possible, existing materials and details.
Work in public spaces often leads to short periods when certain amenities have to be closed to the public. We minimised disruption by forward planning, working closely with contractors and stakeholders, and excellent project management.
In addition to the work undertaken in the gardens, we were asked to produce an exhibition in the church to accompany the wider public consultation. The exhibition was designed by our in-house graphics team using images produced by our 3d modellers.
