House & Garden, the country’s leading interiors magazine, has featured Ballymore’s Wardian London development in its latest issue.
A double page-page spread under the headline Urban Retreat describes Wardian London as a “groundbreaking concept in residential property development” and “an important development in London’s future” because of the way it “combines inspiration from the past with the needs of modern living”.
Referring to the innovative planting scheme by landscape architect Huw Morgan, the magazine says Wardian London is a “tranquil oasis of exotic foliage and high-end living…. where shape, function and form are expertly balanced”.
The magazine’s cover features Ballymore’s Wardian Case that inspired the apartments’ individual ‘sky gardens’.
Designed by Amos and Amos, the wardian case features a collection of botanical ‘found objects’, exotic plants and new and reclaimed furniture.
Jaki Amos said, “The Wardian Case presented an exciting challenge. A true departure from the norm, it offered an opportunity to create an immersive space which takes the visitor on an experiential journey of discovery, reflecting the individuality and uniqueness of the Wardian development.”
Ballymore’s head of communications, Hayleigh O’ Farrell said:
“We’re thrilled to be working with House & Garden. Our ambitions for Wardian London are perfectly aligned with the values of the UK’s leading interiors magazine and we’re looking forward to welcoming some of its readers to see the development for themselves”.
Wardian London consists of two botanically inspired towers comprising 624-apartment suites, restaurants, shops, a rooftop sky lounge and a 25-metre open air swimming pool. The development, designed by architect Glenn Howells, will complete in 2019.
Ballymore’s partnership with House & Garden includes two exclusive events, the first is a botanical drinks reception at Wardian London and the second is a Wealth management seminar.
