It was important to impart year round impact to the entrance so we introduced large, bespoke statement planters, specimen trees and contemporary brass wall lights. The silhouettes of the multi-stemmed trees combined with evergreen underplanting ensured an elegant and dynamic effect through the winter months. The spring flowering perennials and autumn flowering Heptacodium were covered in bees in their first year - testimony that the neighbourhood pollinators had a new source of early and late forage as intended!
As with any roof terrace, the first hurdle was to ascertain the structural condition and weight loading capacity of the area. Working alongside a structural engineer and fantastic construction team, the space was transformed from a busy and cramped galley into a calm and sophisticated sanctuary
Low maintenance and durable porcelain paving, bespoke powder coated planters and sumptuous copper light fittings lend the space a luxurious and tranquil atmosphere. High impact, successional planting, softens the space and introduces seasonal bursts of colour and scent.
