Project name: Hilton penthouse
Client: Ian Simpson
Architect: Ian Simpson Architects
Landscape Projects assisted the building’s architect in the detailed design and sourcing of plant material for this large winter garden in the penthouse suite of Beetham Tower, Manchester; the tallest building in Manchester.
Numerous constraints had to be considered to ensure the garden’s success including plant suitability, construction access and the micro-climate. The design consists of five garden spaces with a Mediterranean planting theme including a grove of mature Italian olive trees, evergreen oak and lemon trees. There is also a reflecting pool set amongst the mature trees.
