Vauxhall Nurseries

Vauxhall Nurseries is an urban design framework that aims to bring fresh drive and identity to Vauxhall’s ever-changing environment through a new treatment of its open spaces.

The proposals seek to reconnect disjointed parts of the neighbourhood, build a better visual perception of Vauxhall and create an identifiable pathway and narrative through the area.
The Nursery concept is formed through the strategic deployment of a sustainable landscape strategy. The strategy provides the opportunity for the embedding of a distinct architectural type that supports a richness of diverse activity by allowing the fostering of businesses, community endeavours and cultural activities within Vauxhall’s numerous open spaces. A range of greening and hydrological interventions are proposed in concert with a low-cost timber panel construction that together activate and make productive existing open space.
Vauxhall’s historic Spring Gardens were used as a site from which to launch and test the concept.
