DeMontfort University

A recent scheme by Urban Planters Leicestershire has transformed a bare university terrace into an inviting seating area, using a mixture of unusual planting and bold containers.

The roof terrace sits on DeMontfort University’s new Vijay Patel building, which houses the art and design faculties and is the centrepiece to its £136 million campus transformation project.

Using the unusual structural forms of various tree species,

Taxus cuspidata, Juniperis squamata ‘Blue Carpet’ and Pinus heldreichii and grouping them with pots of various Carex grasses, the scheme creates contrasts between formal, rigid planting and shifting, soft grasses to great effect, complementing but not blocking the sweeping skyline views.

The rich red ‘Blob’ planters add warmth to the grey expense of paving and also serve to echo the university’s red logo.
