The ceramic pots add warmth amid imposing scale outside the lived-in kitchen adjoining the south-facing roof terrace. Blue fescue and Pencil grasses are displayed in a balanced composition.
the towering bridge
The north-facing balcony at the top features an east view of Canary Wharf panorama, yet the angle encapsulating Tower bridge to the west enables an eye-level, up-close vista.
The Illyrian Iris from Croatia feels at home here in Butlers Wharf, soaking up afternoon sun and enhancing the Tower Bridge view under the blue sky, underplanted with evergreen Sweet flags.
sword ferns & silver trunks
The lower courtyard by the entrance is mostly shaded, and while forming an internal atrium viewed from both the lounge and guest bedroom, its setting is North American with Sword ferns and birches.
In the lower north terrace, the stainless steel green wall system forms an architectural display, spanning the entire 10-metre length of the rooftop, designed to support Clematis armandii.
The Welsh oak bench was custom-built to balance the main roof terrace's linearity, while enhancing the upper balcony's aerial view, with a Blanc de Bierges table and a bijou opal stone sculpture.
fountains of grass
A trio of Pennisetum alopecuroides is featured in tall terrazzo pots along the sunnier corner of the entrance courtyard, generating eye-catching feathery plumes.
The evergreen Clematis armandii is a vigorous climber. We planted three specimens in the lower roof terrace, where the walls form an ideal, solid backdrop in scale and colour.
opal stone & leopard plants
The sculpture echoes the foliage outlines in the lower shaded roof terrace adjacent to the master bedroom, displayed above a stainless steel plinth, and enfolded by the fronds of Tasmanian Tree ferns.
