Lancer Square

London, UK

Gardens of tranquil modernity, inspired by history

Scape’s Landscape proposals focus on delivering an exceptional destination with aspects tailored to its discerning residents & businesses.

Responding to its illustrious history, Lancer Square will be a new mixed-use development located on prosperous Kensington Church Street, near Kensington Palace and Gardens. The Square itself is anchored at the heart of the development and in the same historic location as the military centre of Kensington Barracks. The Square provides both a reference to the past and an opportune pocket of breathing space within the surrounding luxury retail, residential arrival courts and sunken terraces.

Experiencing this fusion of history and modern urban garden is integral to the entire development. Designed to be contemplative at times and energetic at others, water bubbles from a pair of opposing water features whose gentle sounds will drown out the hustle and bustle of the city, providing a unique and elegant relaxation space.
