Historic King Street in Bristol will be free from motor vehicles along its entire length, creating a new open space and place to socialise in the heart of the city.

LDA Design has won a mini competition to create a playful ‘super nature’ setting for Alison Brooks’s new residential towers, part of IQL by Lendlease and LCR, on the edge of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. We are working to create shared space that is a love letter to community, play and nature.
