30 Cannon Street, Roof Terrace

The building at 30 Cannon Street has undergone comprehensive refurbishment and as part of this ALD were appointed as Landscape Architects responsible for the delivery of two publicly accessible roof terraces on the 5th and 6th floors. The original building completed in 1977 was the first building in the UK to use glass reinforced concrete facade panels and in early 2015 30 Cannon Street was added to the National Heritage List for England.


ALD were responsible for production of concept level information for client approval through to construction level details. The level 6 terrace design includes a feature 65 linear metre timber bench against a bespoke planter. The planting within this central planter enhances the stunning views across to St Paul's Cathedral and includes 300 shrubs such as Hebe 'Autumn Glory’ and Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote Superior'. Perennials such as Erica carnea f. aureifolia 'Foxhollow’, Pennisetum alopecuroides and grasses including Sesleria autumnalis also feature in the scheme and create year-round interest and colour.
