Whilst up in London to attend the SGD Awards I made a trip to the South Bank to visit several iconic public spaces and check out how they were faring on a miserable day in January. Only having seen pictures of Gibbons rent designed by Andrew Burns and Sarah Eberle, I was intrigued to find out how it looked in the flesh.
I wasn’t disappointed, the little cut through with it’s wooden lending library (right) was awash with green
Everywhere there were signs that the community is taking great pleasure in the space and planning for the coming season – with pots of daffodils shooting up.
The signage is informative but not dictatorial – really helping people to place plants in the correct spot and advising on the best type of container to use.
