McKenna Green, LB Tower Hamlets

At McKenna Green, ASA worked closely with Consultants Inspire 2 on a scheme to bring back into use an un-loved and un-used courtyard space on an Old Ford Housing Association (OFHA) estate in Bow.

With over £250,000 funding secured from OFHA and following significant demolition works, a ‘hotch-potch’ of paving and unsightly retaining walls was transformed into an attractive terraced grassy space, with seating, and ornamental shrubs and trees. A carved timber sculpture of a sheep and lamb provided the final touch as well as forming a link with the nearby Olympic park where the remainder of the flock will eventually be located.

“Well I was very sceptical ...but whoever was responsible for the design should be congratulated, I think it's lovely, it's made such a difference to the place.”
