Kesteven Green scheme

We were commissioned by Sandwell Planning Department to develop a park scheme for Kesteven Green as part of their refurbishment programme.

We worked with residents, 2 local primary schools and Menzies High School to develop a number of design elements. These included a path scheme, mosaics at junctions on the paths, waymarker posts and seating.

A 'stream' theme was used to unify the ideas generated by residents based on the proximity of a River Tame tributary. This was expressed through the new curving tarmac pathway and river margin mosaics. Waymarkers featuring wildlife found by streams were placed at path entrances.
