Battery Park awarded Finalist position in international Architizer Awards
Battery Park is a Finalist in the Architizer Awards’ Concepts – Plus-Architecture +Urban Transformation category. The position was awarded to the 12 000m² park located at a key gateway to the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.
Battery Park forms part of the Canal District, facilitating the reconnection of the historical city centre and De Waterkant to the V&A. Overall, the aim was to create a public park which lies at the nexus of multiple new pedestrian routes. It, therefore, stitches the new district into the surrounding urban fabric and helps to invigorate the area.
Additionally, dhk’s Sable Park earned a Special Mention in the Details – Plus-Architecture +Cantilever category.
