Landscaping for the learned
With any inner-city building project, logistics often presents one of the biggest challenges. So it was with our recent work in Westminster Bridge Road. We landed the landscape works for a prestigious new student housing development on London’s South Bank, not far from Westminster Bridge and the Houses of Parliament.
The new complex will provide high-grade, sought-after accommodation for students in higher education, as well as housing a new sixth-form college. To meet contemporary demands, it also comprises a health suite with a swimming pool and affordable office space.
Our design puts emphasis on well-being and relaxation. We created a roof garden on the third floor, installing planters, seating and paving. At ground level, the development includes a new green space, with natural stone finishes, bespoke concrete benches and timber seating, providing an urban oasis for the inhabitants.
