Helensburgh Town Centre Public Realm, Helensburgh

New public space ingeniously incorporating an outdoor museum


Contract value: £6.6m


The design ethos was to create a town centre with attractive, usable and flexible public spaces to support community events, festivals and markets. The scheme ingeniously incorporates an outdoor museum. The walkways, soft landscaped areas, tree lines and lighting columns are set out on a simple grid, which enhances and frames the several high quality listed buildings within Colquhoun Square.
