Portmarine Waterfront - Matthew Wigan Associates

Portishead Waterfront

Portishead Dock had previously been a key site for off-loading Scandinavian timber, that was destined for the UK match industry. A series of interconnected pocket parks and walks were designed around the new 450 berth marina, on the site of the old power station. 

The narrative of the park sequence incorporates a variety of public art commissions, that worked in tandem with the landscape, to create a sense of place and provide resonances of the site’s prior industrial and maritime use.
