RIVERSIDE, HEMEL HEMPSTEAD

MarkhantonStudio were appointed to provide conceptual designs for an outdated shopping centre. Works involved the renovation and enhancement of a previously uninviting street scene that lacked robustness and a sense of place.

A strong concept was worked up which strengthened the main focal nodes and created a shopping destination.

The design introduced; large planted beds with circumference seating to relax the shoppers experience, a timber stage spanning the existing bridges to allow for occasional event space and an informal seating / eating area, Interactive water feature to attract users from the high street and create a vibrant space that people will be drawn to and congregate in. The river asset was enhanced by removing physical/ perceived riverside barriers and providing a more informal river edge / interactive space which helps define the schemes sense of place.
