Adjacent to the historic Smithfield Market, the future Museum of London and Farringdon’s new Crossrail station, the project takes advantage of uninterrupted views towards Blackfriars Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral and the City of London. The southwest-facing terrace is subdivided by a series of bespoke planters in an organic composition inspired by the works of Jean Arp. The planting was designed to provide long-lasting seasonal interest well into the winter months, with particular attention to nectar-rich species, specifically selected to support pollinators and other insects. Above, a biodiverse green roof provides a habitat for local fauna; hosting two beehives as well as water capture and reuse facilities for the building.

Developed as part of the Bradley-Hole Schoenaich Landscape Architects team.
