This is a small street in London near Covent Garden. The street is a shared space, with little beyond the paint on the pavement to mark it for autos – it would be better if it didn’t have that. The best thing is perhaps a lack of curbs and sidewalks in the space. Traffic is calmed by this blurring of priority. It is further calmed by the creation of a chicane, behind the protruding bollards, protecting trees. Most of the bollards seem a little like overkill, but I guess the building owners were scared of the cars getting too close.
This is a simple, effective and seemingly cost efficient way to humanize a street.
