Market Square 2014
Commissioned by Kinnear Landscape Architects
Each panel 540cm x 20cm
The Brentford Market project is part of the regeneration of Brentford High St and provides space for play, regular markets and events. ¶ The past history of the space as an apple orchard with it’s scattered fruits is reflected in the abstract irregular design of the ceramic composition which is integrated into the paving and seating area to enrich the market square. ¶ A number of modular, relief tiles with frost and slip resistant qualities were developed for exterior application. The slip resistant floor tiles have a unique relief tread and are glazed with a specially formulated, slip resistant glaze, which conforms to H.S.E. regulations, in both wet and dry conditions. ¶ Casting the floor tiles onto concrete pavers simplified installation and integration into the surrounding York stone pavers, introducing unexpected, robust and rich colour into the exterior landscape. ¶ The project is the winner of two Landscape Institute Awards.
