Littlehaven sea wall and Sunderland square amongst night’s winners
OOBE has won the Northern Design Awards Commercial Landscaping Design category for its work on Littlehaven Promenade and Seawall. Working with Broadbent Studio and E3 Ecology, the practice softened this highly functional piece of engineering and created a new public space enlivened by public art that is also sensitive to its environment.
The Awards were held in Liverpool on Friday 30 October. In the Public Space category, Sunderland City Council won for Keel Square, the city’s new public piazza, which opened this summer and pays hommage to Sunderland’s shipbuilding heritage.
OOBE is also shortlisted in this years’ Landscape Institute Awards, to be announced on 26 November in London. Find out more here
