The Makers is a mixed-use development for New Regent’s College in the London Borough of Hackney. The project aims to deliver a new school in line with the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) principles alongside integrated residential and commercial units.
Our landscape plays a key role in tying the development together with a community driven public realm and multi-level podium gardens. The design approach creates an integrated landscape that demonstrates best practice in providing a creative learning environment for New Regent’s College, a quality residential landscape setting and an exemplary public realm.
In order to create structure to the schools’ external spaces, improve connectivity and provide a varied outdoor experience, the grounds have been conceptually divided into a series of outdoor rooms. This is complimented by a mixture of both private and communal amenity space distributed over a number of roof garden levels.
The proposed scheme is a balanced multilevel experience that is sensitive to its context and intended community.
