We teamed up with WoodBlocX, the makers of a modular system of wooden planters, to create a landscaping scheme for the outside terraces and rooftop areas at a new student accommodation complex overlooking the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.
Using WoodBlocX to build a bespoke set of six raised plant beds around the edges and as islands in the middle, we were able form a series of beds set at interesting angles, creating walkways and seating areas.
We selected plants which would provide year-round interest and encourage biodiversity. This beautiful mixed planting works with the wooden planters to create a natural foreground for the cityscape backdrop beyond.
The solid, high-quality wood was also perfect for the exposed external site, and should stay good-looking for years to come.
The WoodBlocX system worked so well at Unite, that we teamed up again to create plating scheme for the walkways at Westfield Stratford City, just down the road. Click here to see the scheme.
