The garden features a succession of sculpted green mounds, wildflower banks and an orchard, alongside a modern amphitheatre, inspired by the geometry of the Giant's Causeway.
The design concept drew on the nautical and industrial heritage of the site, exposing the forms of the original mud flats and its distant history as London's market garden, to give the space a strong sense of place.
Visitors to the park will experience a 'carefully cultivated wild garden' managed by a resident head gardener to adapt to the changing seasons.
Hoblyn explained: "We've chosen plants to acknowledge the history of the peninsula: in the 16th century it was drained grassland, then market garden and orchard. More recently it became industrial land colonised with a mix of persistent natives and urban escapees. There'll be a flurry of apple blossom in Spring, bee-friendly wildflowers in the Summer and autumnal fruits, hips and haws."
There are no set routes around the park, Fowler explained. "We actively want to encourage visitors to play with the space and determine their own paths and views and the pleasure they get from the garden. We would love to see people climbing the grass mounds, enjoying the different views and creating their own desire lines as they move around the space."
The Peninsula Garden is the first landscape project the Design Research Studio has undertaken. Dixon, who heads up the architectural interior design practice, said: "The opportunity to work in the landscape, rather than within an architectural space, has challenged us to think on a different scale and provided us with a new palette of materials that change with the season and are subject to the wind, rain and occasional British sunshine."
