ReardonSmith Landscape was appointed to design a new landmark public realm scheme in the City of Westminster, located two minutes’ walk from Parliament Square. Christchurch Gardens dates back to the early 17th century and was the site of a chapel (and later Christ Church) and a burial ground. Bombed during World War 2 the site was landscaped and opened to the public but its previous arrangement limited the way it is used.

The project is part of the Victoria Business Improvement District's commitment to improve green infrastructure and provide places for people to enjoy. The site has a fascinating heritage with historical connections to the Suffragettes, Ignatius Sancho, Wenceslaus Hollar and Colonel Thomas Blood. The scheme aims to offer subtle references to this history whilst creating a meaningful space for the community and importantly improving the biodiversity of the site.
