We were part of a multidisciplinary team to deliver a comprehensive renewal of Regent Street, a key pedestrian retail thoroughfare in Swindon. The brief was to establish a new urban environment to stimulate Swindon’s retail economy as part of its Central Area Action Plan.

As lead creative designers we undertook the detailed design, decluttering the street and recreating a dynamic and inviting place. Pedestrian desire lines are defined in natural stone and sequences of open space between tree planting and street furniture highlight the crossroads of the main street easing pedestrian movement.

A series of elliptical pavement ‘islands’ containing contemporary street furniture form defensible resting spaces. Street trees bring shelter, visual interest and foliage within the urban environment.

The design includes animated feature lighting reinforcing the movement of pedestrians and draws attention towards two bold new structures at the main street approach.
