Gasholder No.8 & Canal Reach, Kings Cross
Designed by Bell Phillips Architects, Gasholder 8 is an award winning park and event space located in Kings Cross. The central lawn is framed by a stainless steel covered walkway and renovated gas holder frame, whilst steps and bleachers offer access and views towards the canal. Canal Reach offers a multi use space leading away from the gas holder, with a wavy lawn and moveable planters offering flexibility.
ALD were involved in developing the Bell Phillips and Townshend Landscape Architects concept designs through to completion. With a meticulous attention to detail, ALD worked through challenges such as the creation of granite clad plinths for the historical roller bases, radial paving interfaces and brick clad retaining wall details.
