Chelsea 2013: East Village Garden

East Village, London’s newest neighbourhood based on the athlete village from the 2012 London Olympic Games exhibits show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The East Village garden has an urban feel, characterised by materials including timber, glass and steel, which resonate with the contemporary design and construction of the East Village neighbourhood.

Sponsored by joint owner Delancey, the East Village Garden has been meticulously designed by worldrenowned landscape architects, Michael Balston and Marie-Louise Agius of Balston Agius.
Taking inspiration directly from the form, history and ethos of East Village, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and surrounding Lea Valley area, the garden celebrates the creation and delivery of London’s ‘Legacy Promise’ – a neighbourhood that offers the best of city living with the luxury of vast amounts of open space and spacious private balconies.

The design also draws on aspects of the local history and environment to create a work grounded in Stratford and its remarkable renaissance over the last 5 years, and to Delancey’s long-term commitment to London and a thoughtful approach to the social, built and environmental habitat.
