Landscape design of a sustainable roof terrace for a notable art deco building in North London
Rbmp was instructed to add value and gain planning permission to the proposed development of a 1950s art deco building in Cricklewood with extensive landscape design of a purpose-built roof garden.
The building which is situated close to London, with links to the M1 was being refurbished to increase functionality, through the addition of an extra floor in keeping with the art deco style. However, the focus of the project was not limited to materialisation of the client’s objectives to maximise resources within the building, but also sought to preserve the existing trees on site and incorporate the client’s vision of the roof terrace being utilised as an additional green space for residents.
As part of the detailed design for planning permission RMBP considered the environmental implications of the refurbishment including a tree survey of all of the existing trees on site and consideration of how these would be protected during the construction phase of the project. The design also brought to life the client’s vision for a diverse, verdant and sustainable roof terrace through detailed landscape design plans and a comprehensive planting specification.
