Exchange Square starts on siteDSDHA's major new public park Exchange Square has started on site at Broadgate for our client British Land.Suspended above the live railway tracks of Liverpool Street Station, the 1.5 acre park will offer a four-fold increase in the amount of greenery, dramatically enhancing biodiversity and improving local ecology.A technically challenging construction on a restricted urban site, the 15 month-long build will deliver a new park for the City of London.Exchange Square is the culmination of DSDHA’s Broadgate public realm framework, and offers an unfolding meandering landscape across several levels, with opportunities for rest and reflection, aiming to encourage diverse audiences to enjoy this public amenity. Bringing nature and wellbeing to the fore, in balance with technology, Exchange Square is an informal open-air space in which to meet, celebrate, work and relax surrounded by greenery.Share:

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard
DSDHA is delighted to be one of three teams selected for the second stage of the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Competition, along with Caruso St John and Latz+Partner.
The project will provide an overarching redevelopment for the hard landscape setting of the expanded Dockyard and to better integrate the buildings on site, both old and new.
In view of the nature of the site, its waterfront, its buildings and historic vessels, the combined goal of the collaborative approach between visual artists and winning architect is to engage a broad public in the current life, unique integrity, spatial qualities and history of the Historic Dockyard. We will be collaborating with the acclaimed artist Nathan Coley and the landscape consultants LDA on our proposals.
The overall masterplan is set to complete in 2017.Tags: Architecture DSDHA masterplan urban regeneration urban design landscaping landscape design Portsmouth Harbour Portsmouth Historic Dockyard artists visual artists urban Competition nathan coley LDAShare:
