About This Project
- Dimensions: 10m2 & 4m2
We were invited to design and install a Japanese garden arrangement within the Shard, one of the most iconic buildings in London. Within the foyer of the building a 10 m2 garden was installed, with an additional 4m2 garden under the staircase. In response to its high popularity, the garden was on display for two weeks; a week longer than originally agreed.
The brief entailed creating an area of tranquility that employees could escape to throughout the working day. Products incorporated into the garden included limestone standing stones, an acer palmatum, Chinese scholar rock covered in bun moss, a sphere water feature, polished pebble seat and a Japanese ladle and rest. The arrangement under the staircase included silver grey granite palisades, a Sumo San granite lantern and rhododendron planting.
