Bespoke powder coated steel planters were commissioned by a sovereign wealth fund for two roof terraces, as part of the redevelopment of Grade A offices in the heart of St James's, London SW1.
A total of 22 bespoke trough planters were supplied, each L 1200 x W 400 x H 600mm. The planters were manufactured from 1.5mm thick Zintec steel, polyester powder coated to RAL 9006 [White aluminium].
The planter installation and planting was also conducted by IOTA. The internal reservoir system selected was the Mona Tank 24 [reservoir dims: L900 x W 200 x H 150mm], and each planter was also lined, fertilised and mulched. The plants selected were Hebe rakaiensis, to provide easy-maintenance, year-round foliage, with seasonal floral interest. Hebe rakaiensis also has lighter green foliage than other Hebe varieties, which brightens and adds colour against the tonal greys of the paving and furniture.
IOTA’s planters were recommended for this brief by furniture consultancy Operandum, with whom IOTA has also worked on a number of other high-profile projects, including at Savills new global headquarters in London.
