Vicarage Gate House, Kensington, London W8


Custom steel planters were supplied to Vicarage Gate House, a striking, new-build residential development in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

A total of 38nr. planters were supplied of dims. L 900 x W 400 x H 600mm, manufactured from 1.5mm Zintec Steel with a Polyester Powder Coated finish. The planters included a number of bespoke features:

  • The planters were powder coated with a specialist paint finish: Noir 2200 Sable - D2525 - YW360F, from the Interpon Collection Futura range.
  • The planters were raised from the ground on braked castors, with the brakes accessible behind removable skirts.
  • The planters were pre-drilled with specified apertures, to accommodate both a detachable irrigation system to each planter, and specific drainage requirements.
  • Each planter was punched in a common location inside the downward return of the rim, with a sequential identification number.

IOTA’s planters were commissioned by leading landscape architects Bowles & Wyer, who were the garden design and build contractors for the development. The essential planter concept and design was by Bowles & Wyer, with design detailing by IOTA.  

Vicarage Gate House is a development by Northacre, designed by Eric Parry Architects. The 42,000 square foot building offers a mix of three, four and five bedroom duplex and lateral apartments, each with their own private south-facing outside space and underground parking.
