For all the stick it takes and despite the planning furore in recent years, I don't think many would doubt that The Hamptons and Mayflower Park are a striking and aesthetically pleasing addition to the Worcester Park landscape.
Shimi Dahan, who was project landscape architect for Phase 1 of the Hamptons and Mayflower Park has been in touch with me having stumbled across the blog:
"It’s fascinating to see current photos and witness the rivalry between the Worcester Park and Hamptons residents and the attachment both groups have developed towards the park."
Shimi's portfolio website has some of the early design ideas for the project - you can check them out and have a virtual tour of The Hamptons and Mayflower Park as they were originally envisaged at www.shimid.com (select the portfolio page and scroll half-way down list of projects).
I wonder what Shimi would make of a real-life walk through the completed development?
