Space to connect with nature
The new green terraces at 10 New Burlington Street help enhance biodiversity as well as provide accessible green spaces, ensuring those who live and work in the building have the opportunity to be closer to nature throughout the day.
On the ground floor, beech trees have been planted and a green wall trellis has been installed to create a natural space where the building's occupants can relax with a coffee, or hold informal meetings. Deciduous creepers create a cascading foliage curtain that encapsulates the spaces and add interest as they change colour with the seasons.
On the fifth and sixth floors, the green roof terraces provide ecologically valuable environments that are accessible to the building's office workers, giving them access to nature throughout the day, as well as providing an attractive backdrop for meetings. The plant varieties selected provide a rich and varied habitat, with flowering plants to attract butterflies and bees during the day, and moths and bats at night.
