Pringle Richards Sharratt Architects, supported by Dominic Cole Landscape Design, have just finished this Heritage Lottery Funded restoration of Springfield Park, which is a Grade II Listed green space in the London Borough of Hackney. The project includes the complete restoration of the Grade II Listed Springfield House, which reinstates this much loved local landmark as a much-improved facility for park visitors. As part of the overall regeneration project, a stunning new Community Events Building, the Glass House, sits within the restored walled Kitchen Garden. All of this has been achieved in association with a comprehensive set of improvements to the Park as a whole.
The project involved working closely with local voluntary support groups, the London Borough of Hackney, and various key local Stakeholders including Historic England. Extensive consultation was carried out to determine the brief. The design has been generated in line with a detailed Conservation Plan as well as after the preparation of a detailed Specialist Heritage Significance study to align the restoration, interventions and proposals to enhance important historical features of the buildings and site.
Following a successful NLHF Round 2 in 2018, works started on site in 2019, with completion achieved in January 2021. The overall capital cost of the project is £4 Million.
The Mayor of Hackney Philip Glanville visited the site with Malcolm McGregor in November and stated ‘We’re committed to investing in our parks and green spaces, and providing facilities that the whole community can use. It was incredible to see the progress made at Springfield Park in the last year, despite the challenges of the pandemic. I can’t wait to go back to join the local community to open the new facilities in the spring’
