Studio Weave designed the public realm for two key routes to and from Romford train station, which had not received investment for decades, prior to the connection of the Crossrail network. The project was driven by deep public engagement alongside rigorous resolution of the technical constraints.

Studio Weave set up a project space in one of several empty shops on Victoria Road and transformed it into One Station Parade, a project space that helped to initiate a dialogue between our team and the local community, and offer us a better understanding of their opinions and needs, which could feed into our proposals from the outset.
