Rogallo Place

Bringing a new development to life

FrancisKnight were appointed by Optivo to commission public artwork for Rogallo Place, Horsted Park, Rochester. Rogallo Place is an extra care scheme with 63 apartments available for rent or shared ownership. 

FrancisKnight commissioned artist Christopher Tipping with a brief to create art work that aids a sense of arrival to the buildings entrance. Vinyl artwork and a sculptural granite seat reflect the historic rural and agricultural lands and the relationship with Rochester Airport that was built upon the local farmland. The Rogallo Wing is also credited which was a precursor to the modern hang glider and paraglider.
