Nearly 80 stand-out Coral Red planters were supplied to The Grosvenor Estate, bringing life and colour North Audley Street, in the heart of Mayfair, London W1. The colourful steel planters are laid out in clusters and rows the length of the street, and showcase exuberant, drought-tolerant planting by Alexandra Noble Design.
A total of 44nr shrub planters and 25nr. tree planters were commissioned as part of the project, respectively in 2.0mm and 3.0mm 1.4003-grade Stainless Steel – a grade of Stainless Steel which offers significant benefits for use in public realm, as discussed here: 1.4003-grade Stainless Steel – The Unique Advantages >>
The street planters were finished using a 3-coat Polyester Powder Coat [PPC] system which is certified for C3/C4 environments; and, to further enhance durability, the top coat used was from the STRUCTURA range by Akzo Nobel / Interpon. The bold and impactful top coat colour specified was RAL 3016 [Coral Red]. ‘Mayfair London’ surface decoration branding was retrospectively applied to some larger planters.
IOTA was commissioned by Murphy Carey JV on behalf of The Grosvenor Estate, on the basis of Design, Manufacture and Supply. All design detailing and development was by IOTA, working from a design brief and concept drawings by BDP. North Audley Street is part of Grosvenor’s oldest and best-known asset – its London estate, covering 300 acres of Mayfair and Belgravia, two of London’s most prestigious districts.
