The Stratford Project

Europlanters are proud to have supplied Frost Landscapes with planters and planter benches for their 1,395 m2 screen roof terrace of award winning M7 project in Stratford City, Westfield.

Home to offices for HMRC the roof garden enjoys outstanding views of the City of London skyline, Queen Elizabeth Olympic park and beyond, providing a premier workspace for those who want to locate away from the city, but still have its amazing views.

Selected as the Grand Award winner at the BALI Awards 2020, the project was designed by Simpson Haugh Architects and the roof terrace was designed by Gillespies, constructed by Frosts Landscapes Construction.

The planters were made in RAL 7013 with Iroko timber seating to compliment the buildings bronze, anodised, aluminium fa├žade.

Named level 76 roof garden, so-called due to its height above sea level, the bespoke planters and planter benches by Europlanters sat amongst the Chinese granite and prairie style planting topped with gravel mulch. Due to construction restrictions, there were limitations on how deep the soil beds could be, however, the planters added further depth where necessary. The planters were placed along other standalone benches and bird boxes which created a tranquil space.
