Transformation of Oxford Circus into pedestrianised piazzas

Transformation of London shopping district aims to address air quality, pedestrian congestion and traffic.

Bauland was invited by City of Westminster and Publica design office for design consultations and visual communication to transform Oxford street into a pedestrianized area. Huge plans are set to transform the Oxford Circus road junction in London into two car-free piazzas with trees and seating.

The transformation of the area will be delivered through a phased approach, beginning with the introduction of two pedestrian-friendly piazzas with planting and seating at the Oxford Circus by the end of 2021.

The vision for the future of the Oxford Street District will enhance the area in its entirety while responding to long-standing opportunities and challenges as well as the significant new ones presented by the pandemic. The aim is for it to serve as the blueprint to reinvent the high street for a post pandemic recovery and, crucially, for the longer term.
