The Wardian Apartment

The Wardian Apartment

Intensive paving, planters, and irrigation systems to residential balconies.

Two 50 & 55 floor residential tower blocks in East London on the Isle of Dogs. Blackdown worked closely with Ballymore Eco World and the landscape architects. Blackdown supplied and installed the hard and soft landscaping to the balcony upgrades.  Each upgrade consisted of Dolomitic limestone paving and stepping stones, themed low level planting, planters and irrigation systems,

Inspired by the creativity of 19th century botanist Nathanial Bagshaw Ward – who also, incidentally designed the Wardian case, – the planting scheme was designed around plants that would have been reminiscent of those that Ward would have been familiar with in his era. 

Blackdown was also able to offer residents tailored maintenance packages where required.
