The MW Approach

At the heart of the capital, the scheme features an extensive high quality public realm providing a landscape which acts to soften the built form and provide a human scale environment for this extraordinary location.

Judges comments from the 2017 BALI National Landscape Awards:
The attention to detail demonstrated across this high-pressure site is extremely impressive. The contractor had to wrestle with the challenging logistics presented by the mixed-use development’s extremely busy and high-profile location, adjacent to London’s iconic Tower Bridge, as well as flooding issues throughout construction. The paving along the development’s main thoroughfare involved complex patterns and despite being completed in sections the finish and symmetry is faultless and the precision breathtaking. The paved area around the large central “clock” water feature is equally perfect, and the workmanship across this extensive site, which includes an extension to Potters Field Park and associated works along adjacent roadways, is of the very highest quality. One Tower Bridge is a magnificent advertisement for British landscaping and is worthy recipient of the 2017 BALI Grand Award.

The MW Vision

Murdoch Wickham have designed the exclusive first floor podium courtyard garden, broken into three distinct spaces providing quiet meditative seating areas through to a large formal lawn for residents to relax.

The garden features many specimen plants and trees including hornbeam, magnolia and multi-stem pine which will provide interest throughout the year. Seating areas overlook the lawns and water features the full length of the gardens creates a tranquil atmosphere for the residents.
