Working with AHMM for Derwent, BBUK designed the courtyard spaces associated with a new office building in Old Street, London.  

Evergreen trees form a corridor of green through the space and were chosen specifically to attenuate the wind. These are underplanted with predominantly native perennials, shrubs and bulbs to form a seasonal, wildlife friendly urban garden in a very built-up part of the city.


The courtyard forms part of a new pedestrian connection through the site, from Old Street through to Mallow Street on the western boundary.  New loose furniture compliments fixed benches placed under the trees and ‘Network’ a sculpture by Thomas J Price watches over the space.
