The design brief for these gates required them to be an ‘open invitation to enter’ rather than a barrier to keep people out. Scottish-born jeweller Katy Hackney took inspiration from the mysteries of the sea and the sky to create an image that looks like the planets have collided, as well as making reference to the water that flows around the estate.
Other public commissions include commemorative plaques and medals for the London bombings in 2005. Her jewellery is well known from New York to London, and she teaches Jewellery at Central St Martin’s School of Art.
