Project Background

Project Drivers


Social Impact


a street with painted walls, murals and plants

Windowless street

Connecting to the main street which has more visually pleasing shop fronts, Pepper Lane is made up of more industrial buildings, which had plenty of windowless brick facades. 

Art-led design

Now, strips of our soil-based modular living wall system are interspersed with colourful painted brick sections, with a huge piece of art at one end by Matt Chu, named ‘Coffa’s Tree’ – an inventive way of rejuvenating an otherwise forgotten street.

This was completed in partnership with Coventry City Council and Shearer Property Group.
