Rushden Lakes water feature
The bespoke water feature adorning the central boulevard at Rushden Lakes has been commissioned. The raised water table feeds a 54m long rill following the site’s natural fall towards the boardwalk and lake, creating a engaging playful space. With an eye on practicality the pre-cast rill units are derived from a single standard radiused mould and are reversed to create the opposing curves. The raised water table is an identical unit to the pre-cast raised planters in the central boulevard, with minor mould adaptations to accommodate the weir overflow.
