The landscape design for New Ludgate unites two distinct buildings by reintroducing a historic existing alleyway and incorporating a new public ground-level piazzetta, whilst additionally developing a south-facing roof terrace on the development’s fifth floor. This terrace has dense and colourful planting, setting the standard for terrace gardens through London. It provides important habitats for birds and bees, supporting biodiversity in the City. The piazzetta ties the new development seamlessly into the surrounding urban fabric qurg fine landscape details and finishes. The terrace comprises a dense planting scheme which varies in height and corresponds to an understated colour scheme for pockets of the raised flower bed, which is wrapped in a sinuous white Corian bench. The design of the planting bed allows spectacular views for the building’s users to St Paul’s and the City of London beyond.
