This public realm led regeneration project in Reading aims to bring a London standard of leisure to the town. Occupying a key riverside site in the heart of the city the rejuvenated spaces provide the stage for a series of year round events, markets and exhibitions.
Designed by our Landscape Design team, the scheme will significantly enhance The Oracle’s public realm as part of a Hammerson’s £5.7 million upgrade.
The designs create a sequence of spaces to maximise the riverside location and will be delivered in two phases. Phase One will include the new Pavilion and reconfiguration of The Riverside’s terrace steps to create a larger public space that will be ideal for performances, kiosks and pop-ups. Phase Two will focus on delivering enhancements across The Oracle’s wider public space.
