Goodman's Field, Aldgate

Posted: 30 Jun, 2021

Goodman's Fields is a modern mixed-use urban quarter providing a selection of luxury apartments, coffee shops, restaurants and 2 acres of stunning landscape. Including six bronze horse sculptures galloping through the eye-catching water feature in the extraordinary new public square. We are delighted to have supplied the natural stone elements to the water feature and to all phases of this well thought out and classy development. A creatively designed, pedestrianised, public realm, Goodman's Fields is home to a modern central piazza and two new urban gardens: Four Seasons Garden and Chaucer Gardens. The first phase was opened in 2016 and the stone supply for the final phases of the project completed late in 2020.

Early phases included stone supply to the wonderfully relaxing Four Seasons Garden. Which has Chinese silver grey and black paving as well as silver-grey benches and armrests. The main through fare has black and light grey setts running along several streets and there are European silver-grey coping section around the main water feature. We also supplied several hundred square metres of specially produced Tier black slate walling, used in several areas to enhance the overall appearance.

Later phases had polished silver grey bench seats to the Chaucer Garden and a long radius polished bench made up from several sections and more black and light grey setts and paving. There was a mix of Chinese and European granites supplied over the different phases to ensure delivery timings matched the project requirements. This gives some nice, subtle variations in the light and dark colours across the scheme.
