Reed Watts Architects are involved in a number of initiatives and ideas to enhance the riverside area from Charter Quay to Turks Head in Kingston Upon Thames.
Collaborators include the Community Brain, and its Director Robin Hutchinson, MBE, the Urban Geography Unit at Kingston University led by Peter Garside, Kingston Upon Thames, Buro Happold Engineering and the artist, Mat Colishaw.
We have completed public realm improvements to the south of the listed Kingston bridge, including transforming a local service yard into a new space for performance and trapeze. Other works in development include a new temporary crazy golf course along the banks of the Thames to support local charities and new screening to the river front to provide shelter to external diners.
We have assisted the local authority in its lighting designs for the undercroft to the existing bridge and continue to support the new bicycle improvements, Go Cycle, which we hope will ease congestion in this area whilst providing opportunities to engage more directly with the river.
