Our vision is to create an enchanting paradise, a landmark in the heart of King’s Cross, on which the gasholder is superimposed. The two coexist in stark contrast. The vegetation bursts with life against the frame of the gasholder which sits gracefully, oblivious to the passing of time. Our concept is to mirror the crater which remains when the gasholder bell is wrenched from the ground. The landform is exposed with its layers of geology. The crater is weathered over time. Winds erode it, vegetation colonises it. Water finds its way through it.
