We are involved in a dynamic new project in Manchester – Hulme Street Linear Park. The exciting design brief invites us to convert the existing street into a linear park for the use of the whole community. One of the main objectives is to create a mini-productive landscape where residents can grow fruit and vegetables.
We held an evening public consultation event on Tuesday 2nd August on Hulme Street itself where residents could drop-by, share their thoughts, look at our ideas and doodle theirs whilst enjoying the sunshine and home- cooked vegan food as part of the residents ‘People’s Kitchen’ event!
Further information about the project, including a radio report from the event can be found on the Tenants and Residents Association webpage (Redbricks – The Bentley House Estate In Hulme):
Once again we have an opportunity, as designers, to be involved in a project where we can help a community to realise its ambitions for changing its environment for the better.
