The project will allow for the creation of a green space for people to enjoy, meet, play and appreciate art. The mural artwork will change on a yearly basis will involve local artists to offer positive design that resonates with our community. We propose that the first mural production is supported by this project, whilst the curation and production in the following years being supported by Mad Atelier within the London Design Festival frame. The grounds will host an Aromatic Herbs Wall which will show herbs on a vertical plan, from this country and beyond and offer an olfactive experience to visitors. We propose ludic activities such as a Boules Court and a Ping Pong table. These activities promote social gatherings and gentle physical activity. The experience will be completed by fixed furniture that will be the expression of local designers for a carefully curated urban lounge, wooden pathways and landscaped mini gardens of plants and wild flowers.

What we'll deliver:

  • A Mural for 2021
  • An Aromatic Herbs wall
  • A Boules Court
  • A Ping pong Table
  • Fixed Outdoor Furniture (benches and tables)
  • A Wooden Pathway
  • Plants and Wildflowers

Why it's a great idea:

The project will change a currently underused area into a community green and creative oasis. It will allow for locals to experience a landscaped green space, have fun and exercise while interacting with design and art. The creative community, strong in the area, will be involved in the mural art programme and the urban furniture and as such will have an opportunity to participate to the shaping of our neighbourhood. By allowing a slower experience of the now challenging junction of Lower Clapton Road and Urswick Road, it will benefit local businesses making this part of Lower Clapton more than a transit zone. A destination for rest, fun and art and design enjoyment.

Steps to get it done:

  • Present the project & achieve permissions
  • Leasing with the Local Community
  • Collaborate with local artist to create the mural
  • Collaborate with local designers to design fixed furniture
  • Purchase Materials & Hire cherry picker for the mural
  • Purchase & plant greenery, herbs and wildflowers
  • Create a boules ground
  • Install solar powered lights
