Corinthia Apartments

Whitehall Place, London

Adjoining the Corinthia Hotel London, Karl Harrison Landscapes has developed the terrace for the high-end ambassadorial residence in a stand-alone landmark property. This apartment is an iconic penthouse with wrap-around terraces enjoying views over practically all of London’s historic landmarks.

In excess of 90 tonnes of prime landscaping materials were designed, managed and constructed in a manner that befits a project of this calibre.


Brief

A new build roof terrace garden that needed a first principled design for the apartment’s large open spaces. The client required a simple and uncomplicated approach, seating and entertaining areas that complement the grand style living spaces of the interior.


Design

Simple structures that work with the timber on the terrace and uncomplicated planting.

The stone elements to the exterior structure of the building were matched by the natural stone paving in straight form that run alongside the building whilst timber completes the terrace. Evergreen planting creates warmth to the perimeter whilst Trachelospermum Jasminoides soften with evergreen to the windows and allows a beautiful fragrance during the flowering season. The trellis breaks the monotony of the vertical stone and allows the subtle shapes of the art deco lighting to be echoed in the landscaping.

Fire bowls with relaxed seating and a Jacuzzi are some of the additions to this terrace garden.
