Brown Hart Gardens

Brown Hart Gardens, designed by BDP on behalf of Grosvenor is a historically sensitive elevated public square on top of the roof of a Grade II listed substation. A new accessible stair and glazed platform lift draws shoppers and tourists toward the new destination, and offers a relaxing contemplative environment away from the nearby crowds of Oxford Street. People and plants are key to the rejuvenation of the space. Reconfigurable bespoke planters and furniture create a flexible space that provides for a wide variety of uses, and the new cafe integrates seamlessly with the landscape environment allowing use all year round.
