Our redesign of the Mansell Street entrance of Tower Gateway station in east London regenerated its facilities and reduced crime and antisocial behaviour. The site, formerly a derelict piece of land between a bust road, a multi-storey car park and an elevated railway line, was heavily used by the public despite the risk of crime. The redesign improved the lighting, signage and street-level paving, removed hidden corners and introduced new wall surfaces discouraging vandalism. The result is an infinitely better public environment that is safe as well as aesthetically pleasing. The improvements were subsequently demolished as part of the four-car platform extension project.
