Located in City of London, EC4, London, United Kingdom, Angel Lane was designed by Townshend Landscape Architects. The former street has been transformed into a green corridor with tilting stone planters and timber and stone benches that allow users to take a short rest whilst using the Thames River Walk.
A raised lawn has been designed adjacent to the main river walkway, where people can sit and enjoy the sunny aspect. The planting subtly integrates bands of perennial flowering plants, set amongst enduring evergreen hedge species, to delight and surprise the visitor at different times throughout the year. Above this tapestry the light-reflective building of One Angel Lane, is brought down to human scale by high canopied Birch trees, casting a dappled shade over judiciously placed seating areas, and the soft lower canopies of multi-stemmed Amelanchier lamarkii and Cornus kousa ‘Chinensis’ provide a sense of privacy.
