Egham Gateway

Surrey, UK

Egham Gateway is a new mixed-use development in the Runnymede borough of Surrey.

Mixed-use buildings combine new retail, leisure, residential and student accommodation, around a pedestrianised public realm, creating a gateway from Egham Station to the town centre.

The proposed landscape design responds to the historic significance of the site to revitalise Egham’s civic heart and create a contemporary approach to the public realm whilst respecting the surrounding heritage assets. A newly defined, unified high street is underpinned with a design language taking reference from Egham’s heritage. Brick patterns found in the conservation area are picked up in bespoke landscape elements and a series of planters quote extracts from the poem Coopers-Hill, picturing the Thames Valley scenery around Sir John Denham’s home in Egham.

Working closely with architects AHMM, Grant Associates worked from concept to completion on the public realm and private roof terraces.
