ReardonSmith Landscape were approached by Land Securities to develop public realm and landscape enhancements as part of the Client’s asset improvement works, that carefully respect and integrate with the existing castle and prison layout.

Celebrating the site’s rich heritage and history dating back to the 11th Century, the proposals will celebrate the past through the creation of a series of landscape interventions referencing the historic spaces which existed on the site over time. Aimed at increasing visitor numbers and duration of stay within the Castle Quarter, the public realm is a key component of the upgrade works.

In addition to hard and soft landscape enhancements, new signage, lighting and sculpture will be investigated to improve legibility, character and connectivity within Oxford city centre.
