Wardian London launch

October 5, 2015

September saw the launch of Wardian London for clients EcoWorld and Ballymore. This visionary project consists of two new luxury residential towers of fifty and fifty-five storeys, located just south of Canary Wharf, in the heart of London’s financial centre. In addition to the high-end apartments, the project boasts commercial, leisure facilities and innovative sky gardens by landscape specialist Camlins.

The inspiration behind Wardian London is the explorer, botanist, and inventor, Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward, a doctor, who invented a method of transporting plant life across vast distances in his innovative glass ‘Wardian cases.

Hosted in Ballymore’s Design Cube, guests were entertained with gin cocktails at a preview of Wardian London’s rooftop observatory bar – set to be the largest botanical gin garden in London.
