A penthouse roof terrace in Canary Wharf, London, came about through a working relationship with At Home Interior Design Consultants, with whom we have worked on numerous projects.

A large balcony terrace was on the southerly aspect and a narrow walk around strip surround the remaining side. The outside space however small was made more important by the glass walls of the penthouse and the fantastic views of the O2  and Canary Wharf beyond.

The design was kept simple so as to be in harmony with the contemporary interior. Recycled ECOdeck in grey was proposed as the surface, with box hedging in galvanised steel containers would wrap around the building adding much needed green to the urban setting. These hedges were punctuated with Box balls and in one area privet standards emphasised the architectural feel of this scheme.
