Contractors sought for £250M Sighthill regeneration
March 22 2016
Adhering to a public realm strategy developed by LDA Design, in conjunction with the council’s own in-house master planners, the proposals include a series of ‘parkettes’ hosting recreational spaces, seating and sculpture along a central boulevard dubbed ‘the garden spine’.
Kirstin Taylor, director at LDA Design, said: “Our focus has been on the landscape and amenities, taking the emphasis away from vehicles and onto the community they will serve, and giving Sighthill a unique identity.
“We’re also proposing innovative green infrastructure solutions such as rain gardens within key streetscapes, right through to the design and specification of bespoke street furniture and dramatic gateway spaces.”
A separate ‘civic spine’ serves as the primary pedestrian route through the centre of the scheme.
