Birchwood Shopping Centre are upgrading and developing the memorial garden at entrance one, along with their memorial benches once the garden is complete.
The brief is to plan and re-design the space surrounding the original memorial monument. The space will provide people with a place to remember those involved in or affected by a war or conflict. It will also be a recreational area to meet or rest.
The concept combines seating areas and paved access to the memorial, and hard standing which is imperative during ceremonies. This is all encompassed in a design symbolizing the Victoria cross.
