Bold landscape design for the urban environment

Designed in collaboration with Glenn Howells architects, Wardian comprises two residential towers of 55 and 50-storeys which contain 766 homes including suites, one and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses. Instantly recognisable by their generous wrap-around balconies and slender profiles, the towers land onto a two-storey podium, housing a grand lobby, pool, and restaurant and retail outlets. Every resident will become a member of The Wardian Club, allowing access to exclusive facilities including a 25m open air swimming pool, gym, cinema, two restaurants and a double height rooftop sky garden with mature trees. A 24 hour concierge service is also provided.

"International plant experts have sourced more than a hundred different species of exotic plants and flowers from across the world"

Wardian London was inspired by the great explorer and innovator Dr Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward who was responsible for the creation of the Wardian Case, used to transport plants around the world at the height of the British Empire. The core vision was to harmonise man-made design with the natural world and the scheme carefully balances nature and human invention by combining the bold exterior with equally bold landscape design. International plant experts have sourced more than a hundred different species of exotic plants and flowers from across the world reflecting those that were first transported to London by Wardian Cases including the exceptionally rare Wollemi Pine. These plants are used throughout the development and will change with the seasons, evoking the botanic palm houses at Kew and creating a tranquil oasis that brings the outside in.
