Park Central - North, Elephant Park

LONDON - COMPLETED 2021

Park Central North is part of the large Elephant Park residential development in South London. The plot is dominated by AHMM’s 23 floor residential tower with a new park directly to the south. Four midrise blocks surround the park and include two roof gardens on floors eight and ten, and a generous podium garden at first floor level. The roof gardens give residents sweeping views over South London and provide grow areas and dining space alongside planting beds and a generous lawn.

 

Our concept for the design of the park followed an investigation into historic maps of the area with new pathways across the garden tracing the pre existing lines of streets, paths and access bridges of the previous streets and Heygate estate. The levels in the central area are gently graded to half a meter higher than the threshold levels, avoiding the need for raised planters thereby making the whole park accessible for all.
