Inspiring, animated and welcoming space offering an alternative pedestrian route away from the traffic of Victoria Street

Wilcox Place is located within the Westminster Cathedral Conservation Area. The area which is south of Victoria Street has a distinct urban grain of residential streets that contrasts with Victoria Street and Cardinal Place.

Through streetscape improvements there was potential to improve pedestrian priority and offer an alternative route to the hustle and bustle of Victoria Street and Burns + Nice won the design competition to redesign the space. The scheme creates a managed and safe environment both during the day and night, a new space that is well used by the local community and an inspiring, animated and welcoming public open space. The scheme includes an integrated art work by Yinka Shonibare.
