Walthamstow Reservoirs, Visioning Study — London

Banbury Reservoir is re-imagined as a destination on the North Circular which exploits its autonomy.

A retreat on the North Circular including a floating hotel and eco-pontoon holiday homes.

The landscape of the Lower Reservoirs as a microcosm of the greater Lea Valley.

A virtually inaccessible land holding, 4km long by 1km wide, the site lies at the heart of a key area of growth in the capital.

The resulting plan envisages a spectrum of facilities and landscapes.

This vision draws on the unique characteristics of the existing reservoir topography, from the North Circular edge through to ecologically sensitive marsh and wetland.
