Clerkenwell Green

Heritage input into public realm proposals into one of London’s oldest squares.

Originally the open space between a monastery and a nunnery, Clerkenwell Green is one of London’s most historic enclaves. However, while its edges have been substantially redeveloped or restored, the open space itself, has become run down with ever increasing pedestrian and vehicular flows but poor surfaces, redundant structures at its centre, and its listed street furniture scattered. Working with landscape designers and highways engineers, Robert/Authentic Futures provided the research, identified lost assets, participated in extensive engagement and made recommendations for the public realm.
