IOTA’s bespoke Zinc planters and timber seating feature in communal terrace gardens, designed by Andy Sturgeon Design, at The Bindery office development in the heart of Hatton Garden.
The Bindery is a reimagining, by developer Dorrington Plc and architects Piercy & Company, of an Art Deco building, built on the site of a book-binding business. With a mission to create “what office space should be”, classical building features are combined with flawless levels of comfort, outstanding attention to detail, and impeccable sustainability and wellness credentials.
IOTA’s Scope of Works at The Bindery included:
7th Floor Roof Terrace
Ground Floor Reception Terrace
The complete works weighed 6 tonnes, and were delivered via 4nr. dedicated artic trailers.
Given the scale of the planters, they were manufactured from 1.2mm Zinc sheet clad onto 2.0mm Zintec Steel, to give sufficient strength and stiffness. The same technique is used by IOTA to create large planters from other softer metals, such as Lead, Copper, Brass and Bronze. The Zinc planters were supplied with a hand-applied, pre-patinated finish, with the intention that they would then age naturally within the maturing gardens.
IOTA’s works were commissioned, and installed, by award-winning landscape design and build practice, Landform Consultants.
