King’s Cross Tapper Walk, Urban

B|D Landscape Architects are working for Carillion Construction Services on the detail design and construction phases of this small but high quality part of the King’s Cross development.

Tapper Walk is an important connection from York Way into the King’s Cross development leading to Cubitt Park with level access and a tree lined entrance into the Park.  The public realm addresses the main entrance to Roseberry Mansions and adjoining public realm to Saxon Court and Building S5.

High quality Yorkstone, tactile timber benches and semi-mature London Plane trees comprise the landscape palette with reclaimed granite setts used above the linear tree pits.  Cluster of cycle stands define the tree pits and the broad Walk will give a great vantage point over the extensive Cubitt Park.

The project completed in 2014 and B|D also worked alongside Carillion to deliver the neighbouring plot S5.
