The new community orchard at Queens Drive, Hackney is close to completion. We’re pleased with the implied friendliness suggested by the form of the lantern and bracket and the informality of the colour finish. And the integrated laser cut sign looks great. The character of the park will mature as members of the community begin working in the garden, and a varied pattern of safe, secure and social night time activity emerges.
