Transforming into one of London's finest public parks, Exchange Square at Broadgate recently underwent significant remodelling to create a haven for office employees and visitors alike. Positioned over the tracks of Liverpool Street Station, Exchange Square's meandering paths sought inspiration from the landscapes of East Anglia, quadrupling the amount of green space at the central London location.
As the vision of the modern workplace evolves, the value of enhanced public spaces has become central to the design and construction of commercial offices. The 1.5-acre public park at Exchange Square is a testament to the developer's ambition to boost the emotional and physical well-being of those who visit Broadgate.
Accessible to all, Exchange Square provides a well-maintained outdoor space with a wide variety of trees and flora to enhance well-being and encourage biodiversity. Designed by DSDHA, this tranquil landscape offers something for everyone.
DSDHA's founding director, Deborah Saunt, explained: "Our ambition for this new park was to create a landscape that nurtures both plants and people through retrofitting nature into the heart of the City, breaking down perceived barriers to the surrounding areas, and offering a space that provides opportunities for both recuperation and recreation."
