The extreme urbanity of the heart of the City of London acts to filter nearly every aspect of nature from St. Helen's Square. Glimpses of sky and light are the sole natural phenomena to reach ground level, and it is these occurrences which inform our composition.

This play of light and reflection coupled with the collage of geometry which the surrounding elevations create is directly expressed on the ground plane. The concept of fractural geometry is an underlying organiser for the entirety of our proposal. This order is the basis for much of the natural world; such as cloud formations, creation of mountain ranges and structure of plants, and constitutes part of our sustainability approach. This effort is enhanced by the use of reconstituted bound glass paving which captures the themes of light, reflection, modernity and environmental awareness.
