Old Street Circus would create another landmark circus and a useable space for Londoners 

Dar has been longlisted for the prestigious redesign of the iconic Old Street Roundabout in London. Dar’s design is to create a diverse, vibrant landmark for London called Old Street Circus. The design reclaims the roundabout for the people of London to create a thriving, active, healthy, safe and inclusive urban community green space that draws in, connects and captivates, giving people good reasons to visit.

Old Street Circus would create another landmark circus in London. The transformation into a genuinely useable public space creates scope for hosting a wide-range of public and commercial activities and services, generating revenue for reinvestment in the progressive enhancement of the space.

 The outer circular screens allow information to be displayed dynamically, depending on time of day, season, and occasion, the inner screen can display separate information or imagery from the outer screen. The screen is flexible and can be used for community and arts events. A new station entrance will be celebrated as part of the proposals, while key views to Old Street are opened up and historic buildings are created and the illumination of the space creates a safer environment. A green heart of Old Street Circus with new trees and planting.

Commenting on the designs Robyn Gilmour, Head of Marketing and Business Development for Dar, said: “We are thrilled to be longlisted for the prestigious redevelopment of Old Street Roundabout which focuses on delivering public space back to the people of this great city”.
