A city chic oasis
Lush vertical planting and cascading water creates a sleek, chic pocket park at the entrance to this luxury development.
Roof garden planting frames expansive city views.
Water, light and a luxuriant eighteen metre green wall invite residents into the Canaletto Tower via a small but perfectly formed pocket park. It’s an inspiring entrance and a welcome green intervention in a busy city context.
While the cascading wall of water helps mask the noise of the busy road, the planting shields the entrance from the passing traffic. Trees provide dappled sun and shade, and a sinuous granite edge folds and widens to offer seating and a strong frame for the space. It’s an intelligent use of a limited footprint, which delivers maximum impact.
The same approach continues up and over the tower, via living walls, sunken shade gardens, roof terraces and biodiverse green roofs. Bountiful planting on the residents’ terrace and in the penthouse garden softens sleek lines and frames expansive city views.
On the higher levels, trees and shrubs have been carefully chosen for wind tolerance and exposure, to ensure a long life.
