The Paul Hogarth Company is proud to have played its part in the regeneration of Belfast as the city emerged from conflict in the late 1990s. A key part of this process was the formation of the urban regeneration company Laganside, which focussed on revitalising the post-industrial landscape along the banks of the River Lagan.
As term appointed Landscape Architects and Urban Designers the practice set about providing the strategic framework for change, before designing and delivering multiple public realm projects. The scale of transformation was substantial, with each project successfully attracting much needed investment and employment into the city. Custom House Square went from being a dual carriageway and car park to a dynamic civic and events space, complete with dancing fountains. The nearby alleyways and entries went from being a no-go warehouse district to the Cathedral Quarter – now the city’s go-to destination for nightlife and the arts. And the forgotten slipways at Harland & Wolff continue to be comprehensively developed into the Titanic Quarter and home to Titanic Belfast, voted the world’s leading visitor attraction.
We would be delighted to hear from you and to discuss your ideas.
