The London Borough of Hackney is recruiting a design team for a £3 million restoration of Grade II-listed Springfield Park
Planned to complete in 2019, the project will restore the 14.7 hectare Upper Clapton park’s landscape, footpaths, play areas, gates and historic buildings.
According to the contract notice: ‘The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has pledged to provide a full grant for these works, but a second-round HLF application needs to be submitted to secure it.
‘A suitably qualified and highly experienced design team is required to lead the project to fulfil both the HLF and the Council’s requirements for the project and its successful delivery.’
Opened in 1905, the park was created by joining together the landscaped gardens of three private houses. Only Springfield House – now known as White Lodge (pictured) and home to the Spark Café – survives.
Overlooking the nearby Lea Valley and Walthamstow Marshes – the hilltop park features a bandstand, bowling green, ornamental gardens, tennis courts and sport pitches.
The winning team will develop the scheme from RIBA Stage 2 through to 7. The deadline for applications is 12pm on 16 June.
