Neal’s Yard: Colorful London Icon

The goal of a Landscape Architect is to create memorable spaces.  Neal’s Yard  is a playful space that is easy to remember.  Named after its 17th century developer, Thomas Neale, Neal’s Yard is an iconic London alley located in Covent Garden between Shorts Gardens and Monmouth Street.  The alley opens up to a a triangular-shaped courtyard surrounded by colorful, health food cafes and organic retailers such as Neal’s Yard Salad Bar, Neal’s Yard Dairy and Neal’s Yard Remedies.

The space is also activated by local events like the 10,000 Balloon release.  (Hopefully those were bio-degradable.)
