London practice designing public realm improvements for Redbridge Council

London-based architecture practice DK-CM has revealed its proposals for public realm improvements at Fulwell Cross in Barkingside.

The Better Barkingside project includes a new town square and improvements to Barkingside high street and the area outside Fulwell Cross Library.

The practice, founded by David Knight and Christina Monteiro, was appointed after a competitive tender run by Redbridge Council and Design for London.
