pH+ creates 'experiential garden den'

  • Comment

pH+ Architects has built a pop-up sensory garden in Greenwich for the 2016 London Festival of Architecture


The sensory space, which has been built on Peninsula Square in Greenwich, is a temporary pavilion based on the ideas the practice has developed for the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy (LCCCP) in Haringey.

Named the Milkshake Tree, the installation has been designed to encourage play through sounds, smells, movement and reflective surfaces.

It includes a ramped walkway surrounded by a screen of timber fins and copper xylophones which wrap around a 12m2 gold mirrored cube.

After the festival the project will be relocated to the LCCCP’s new home in North London which recently received planning permission

Andy Puncher, director at pH+ said: ‘After three years of collaborating with the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy we are delighted to present to the wider public some of the features that will be enjoyed by the children in their new school.’ 

Jo Honigmann, chief executive of LCCCP added: ‘We hope the installation will give visitors a great taster of the innovative features we plan to include in our new centre and school. We are very grateful to those who have put their time towards the design and construction.’ 

The Milkshake Tree opens outside the NOW Gallery on Greenwich Peninsula on 23 June and remains in place until 3 July.
