Westfield Stratford City have recently submitted a planning application to improve the appearance of International Square (the area between Stratford International Station and Tap East) by providing a new children’s play area, coffee stall and additional seating.
The proposed play area, by designers Monstrum and Komplan, is designed around the theme of biodiversity: taking the form of a pond, with toddler-orientated play equipment themed as a large fish, a frog, water lilies and boats.
A coffee kiosk is proposed adjacent to the steps up the first floor of Westfield, although detailed designs have not yet be submitted
The proposal is pending approval by the London Legacy Development Corporation. Full details of the application are available on their website, from which these pictures are taken.
