"Integration of elements retained, restored and/or reintroduced... reviving layers of memory."

The concept focuses on embracing Mrs Nixon’s philosophy and the creation of defined spaces with clear connections in this constrained, yet unique public garden. A carefully considered palette of materials and plants are sensitive to the site’s character and its surroundings, with design form and dialogue between elements acknowledging Emilia Maud Nixon’s love of the two peoples. Spatially, the design achieves a sense of balance across the site; a balance between open and enclosed spaces, function and the integration of elements to be retained or restored and reintroduced to the site, reviving layers of memory, which for some has faded over time.
