Redcar Seafront Open Design Competition


The winning design team led by Harrogate-based landscape architects Smeeden Foreman working in collaboration with Seven Architecture, Arup and Davis Langdon, aims to bring characteristics of the beach up onto the promenade, using textures, colours, shapes and sights from the seafront in seating, paving and the ribbons of a wave ‘canopy’ stretching along the coastline.

Redcar is a seaside town situated on the bracing and beautiful coast of north-east England. The town is justifiably proud of its past, but now recognises the need for improvements to its public realm and amenities to ensure a dynamic future for residents and visitors alike. The seafront is a key spatial zone that will be at the heart of a resurgent town embracing change.

Design ideas for the public realm improvements associated with a proposed GBP £14m coastal defence scheme.
