Europlanters Illuminate Hanover Square

A new development project at the corner of Hanover Square and Oxford Street connects two properties that were previously separated by an internal courtyard. McLaren construction was appointed by Aviva Life & Pensions to completely demolish the existing office and retail buildings of 287 Oxford Street and 11-12 Hanover Square in Westminster to construct the new eight storey building producing a much larger space.
Comprising of retail space and  commercial offices the £2.4M new development, built over seven floors and basement, was designed by Campbell Architects. On the sixth floor where the building steps away from Oxford Street the space was developed into a large roof terrace which now overlooks the hustle and bustle of the shoppers below and across the city skyline.  A second smaller terrace sitting on the seventh floor overlooks the larger green roof. Europlanters were involved in the design of the large terrace, working with McLaren and Campbell to create a secluded garden area made for the clients using the office space. The design included Corten clad GRP planters with Sapele timber floating seats and tables. LED lighting was added to create a relaxing ambiance and Sapele timber screening to frame the view of the city skyline.  The project  comprised of 21 metres of floating seating made from Sapele timber. An L’ shaped planter 11.4 Metres long /1500mm wide /1100mm high across the back with a further 9.2 Metres of the same dimensions down the right hand side. (Plan view) A large planting bed in the centre of the roof terrace with floating seating arranged to create three private spaces. The planter which is 3.2 Metres Long /5.7Metres wide/ 1100mm high was made from GRP panelling to create one very large planter. 7 Metres of Sapele timber screening at 550mm high was then used as a wind break and to frame the skyline. LED lighting was also fitted to the planters and seating which lit up the garden creating a relaxing atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the city below. Kingston Landscape Gardens planted up the containers with a wide selection of shrubs and trees to complement the surroundings.
