Brown Hart Gardens

Brown Hart Gardens

Brown Hart Gardens is an elevated deck atop a large electricity substation in the heart of London’s West End. The project involved the redevelopment of the deck into a public space with a new pavilion cafe, seating, planting and access. The external lighting is discreet and low level. 80 LED tiles create a playful, random arrangement of light sources, and concealed luminaires wash light across the deckĀ from benches and planters. The cafe has a simple downlight scheme with cove lighting to its facetted ceiling. Client: Grosvenor.
