Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London


IOTA’s Boulevard planters were selected for the recently remodeled Royal Opera House, at the heart of Covent Garden in London.

The planters green the remarkable glazed terrace of Restaurant Level 5, with its unrivalled views over Covent Garden piazza. The planting scheme was created and installed by the multi-award winning Design Studio and Landscaping team at Rosebank Landscaping.

A total of 33 planters were used in this scheme, selected from the KYOTO and QUADRA stock designs in the standard RAL 7016 [Anthracite grey] colour.

Boulevard planters are a range of high-performance composite planters made from a proprietary form of Fibre Reinforced Cement [FRC]. All Boulevard planters possess an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, making them suitable for a wide range of environments – from weight-restricted areas, to interiors, to public spaces and streetscapes.

The Royal Opera is one of the world’s leading opera companies. Based in the iconic Covent Garden theatre, it is renowned both for its outstanding performances of traditional opera and for commissioning new works by leading contemporary opera composers. Completed in September 2018, the Royal Opera House building has recently undergone a £50m transformative remodeling, designed by architects Stanton Williams.
