Shaping places through public art

At Northacre, we believe public art plays a pivotal role in shaping the character and vibrancy of our developments. Beyond the physical building, art breathes life into the spaces we create. It fosters a sense of identity and community, enhances the visual landscape, sparks conversations, and shared experiences among residents and visitors.

In Orchard Place, Nick Hornby’s “Power over others is Weakness disguised as Strength” invites viewers to reflect on the delicate balance between strength and vulnerability.

Masa Al-Kutoubi comments “Public art plays a crucial role in placemaking by transforming urban spaces and developments into vibrant, engaging environments that foster a sense of belonging and pride within the community.

The Broadway’s public arts initiative has been instrumental in creating a distinct sense of place; through the commissioning of local artists, by celebrating the development’s history and location, it has strengthened the community’s identity and connection to the area.”
