Project Details

  • RIBA living Wall Installation on the Florence Hall terrace
  • Planting design inspired by a modern artwork
  • In collaboration with Dan Pearson

Biotecture installed two living walls on this roof terrace, designed in conjunction with Dan Pearson Studios as part of a refurbishment of the Florence Hall Terrace at the Royal Institute of British Architects' iconic headquarters in central London. The planting design for the living walls was inspired by a Mark Rothko painting, and has a sophisticated planting scheme to complement a contemporary water sculpture by William Pye. RIBA use the roof terrace as an elegant space for entertaining, hospitality and events. To see another example of a Biotecture living wall on a roof terrace you can visit our 'Roof Terrace Living Wall, Camden' portfolio Page

[We felt that Dan Pearson's design] incorporating sophisticated planting strategies and living walls, would provide a beautiful counterpoint to the architecture of 66 Portland Place and significantly enhance and enrich the experience of the terraces.
