The Royal Parks Foundation Drinking Fountain is intended as a formally elegant addition to the repertoire of urban furniture already provided in London's Royal Parks.
Excess water is caught by the flared bell at the top and guided through the centre of the fountain to a drain at the bottom of the structure.
Considering the Grade I-listed environments in which the fountain is placed, it was vital that it could exist as a high-quality, contemporary piece of design, compatible with a wide range of existing items of design, from many periods and in many styles.
Consequently the single most important consideration in the design of this fountain has been to ensure that its aesthetic qualities make it suitable for use in a wide range of circumstances.
The form has been tailored to suit modern means of manufacture and regulations, while also allowing for a sympathetic incorporation into important and sensitive locations.
