The roof space of this law firm which overlooks the Tate Modern has been fully utilised by creating a series of outdoor rooms to allow employees to work in privacy. A central conference area has been created using lightweight concrete table and chairs and large barbeque area provided for events. The planting design makes reference to the riverside setting using long grasses which create waves in more windy conditions. Planting has been chosen to provide all year round interest in terms of colour, sound and smell. Pre - grown mature ivy fencing was used to create shelter on the more exposed side of the roof top.
