Regeneration and modernisation of existing shopfronts and facades with a new grand entrance.
The north entrance to Festival Place shopping centre required a new lease of life to modernise the external retail environment and create a strong and visible entry to the centre. The three-phase upgrade to St John’s Square included the modernisation of shopfronts and existing building facades, new hard-landscaping and a new glazed grand entrance. The removal of central kiosks enabled greater visibility to the new grand entrance and with new public seating, planting and canopies the central public realm provided rest areas.
