Greenwich Millennium Village

Central Oval Master Plan, London


Date: 1996 - 2000

Location: London, UK

Project Team: Randle Siddeley & Associates + Julia Watson

Client: English Partnerships

Julia working in collaboration with Randle Siddeley and Associates designed the landscape master plan for the public realm of the Greenwich Millenium Village.

GMV is located on the Greenwich Peninsula, a one hundred and twenty-one-hectare brownfield redevelopment site, formerly occupied by the town gas works, on the southern banks of the River Thames in southeast London, about nine kilometers from the London city center. In 1997 English Partnerships committed to transforming the Peninsula, one of the largest development sites in London, into a new residential community. The regeneration project occupies twenty-nine hectares on the south-eastern side of the Peninsula. High-quality landscape and open space was a key feature of the vision for the district, which is a new urban village. The principal aim in the design of the square is to create a vibrant public space that becomes the heart and focus of the village.
