At Clapton Park, and on many other housing areas in East London and Luton, I have designed defensible space to improve local areas. Vague, semi-derelict open spaces are turned into private or community gardens and play spaces, working with local residents to develop the designs. This example is in Hackney in East London where each resident chose their own design.

A series of templates were prepared as initial guidelines, and while some chose particularly types of garden, others ahd very specific requirements and these were accommodated.
