Chapman Taylor constructs Europe’s largest green wall at Ashford Designer Outlet

The concept behind the extension design was to reflect Kent’s popular reputation as ‘The Garden of England’, and so a living green wall – the largest in Europe – was incorporated as a major focal point of the project.

Officially opening in November 2019, the 9,300 sq m extension to the existing Ashford Designer Outlet complex, designed for McArthurGlen by Chapman Taylor’s London studio (alongside Applied Landscape Design) and delivered by Chapman Taylor’s Bristol studio, will add 46 retail, leisure and F&B units to the 80 already operating, as well as a new events space and a children’s play area.

Reflecting Kent’s status as “the Garden of England”, a living green wall of tens of thousands of vertically-stacked plants will clad the center – the largest living wall in Europe – greeting affluent long-haul tourists from Europe and beyond as well as day-out shoppers.
