Metal planters and decorative screens

We were commissioned by engineering multinational Laing O’Rourke to create bespoke steel planters for six outdoor terraces at Clarges, a high-end residential development in Mayfair. Each terrace required seven planters, in two different styles, making this one of our largest single projects of this kind to date. The balustrade planters are set on step bases with concealed LED lighting, and have an anodic bronze powder-coated finish. At each end is an IP65-rated enclosure, made to our own design, containing the lighting drivers and irrigation system. The plants are contained in a powder-coated steel liner, with a single port providing controlled drainage.  The divider planters sit back-to-back between adjoining terraces. The integral privacy screens, 1250mm by up to 2.6m wide, comprise a sheet of toughened, frosted glass, bespoke-made for us in Belgium, held in a steel frame. On each side is a laser-cut steel panel, following the same pattern as Clarges’ gates and balconies. Laing O’Rourke’s structural engineers helped us with wind-load calculations; an important consideration for such heavy objects nine storeys up!
