Landscaping and Pavilion design in association with Kim Wilkie Associates.

St Andrew's Holborn traces it history back to the middle-ages and was rebuilt by Christopher Wren following the great fire of 1666.

The existing gardens are an odd arrangement of disjointed spaces which have arisen due to the front gardens being owned by the City of London and the side gardens by the Church. The proposal aims to unify these spaces into a coherent landscape, opening up the spaces around the church, providing universal access to the whole gardens and the Front entrance of the Church. At the heart of the scheme sits a pavilion that provides respite from the elements and bustle of the city with views towards a terrace of vibrant planting and the Wren’s largest parish church.
