Sugar Island, London E15 – Communal Roof Garden


IOTA was commissioned to supply a bespoke communal roof garden scheme, for the Sugar Island development in Stratford, London E15. The communal roof garden is at the top of a residential apartment block.

A total of 8nr. large, multi-section planters were manufactured, the largest of dims. L 11070 x W 928 x H 862mm. These planters formed the structural ‘backbone’ for the garden, to which services were attached; and from which seating and cladding was built-out [by others], all of a light grey composite decking. All of IOTA’s works were manufactured from 2.0mm Zintec Steel, Polyester Powder Coated to RAL 7048 [Pearl mouse grey].  

Sugar Island is a 26 acre water-surrounded district in Stratford, East London, under current development by Vastint UK. Striking a balance between homes, offices, creative hubs and independent retailers, and surrounded by outdoor spaces and waterways, the Island will become a cohesive neighbourhood, inspiring human connection. When completed, Sugar House Island will deliver:

  • 58,000m² offices (624,000ft²) bringing 2,500 jobs to the local area.
  • 1,200 homes, with 40% 3-bed or more.
  • 1.2 hectares (3 acres) of open space including a riverside park.
  • Restaurants, cafés and shops, all with an independent feel.
  • A 350-bed hotel.
  • 3 new bridges connecting the development into surrounding communities.
