Custom-made modern granite planters were installed at Grosvenor House Apartments, a luxury apartment-hotel in the heart of London. The polished granite planters added an elegant accent to a premiere establishment.
These planters were used to add greenlife to the adjoining terraces on the top two floors of the establishment. The custom granite planters have been installed in the balconies of private apartments as well as within the courtyard.
In the entire development, a total of 276 planters were used in varying shapes and sizes including troughs, cubes, and low tapers. With a mid-grey shade the planters add an additional elegance to the architectural design. Planters that are to be installed in the Interiors have been supplied with sealed drain holes for easier maintenance while the exterior planters were pre-drilled with custom drain holes to be connected to an automated irrigation and drainage system to ensure that plants are never under-watered or over-watered. This system allowed for little need for manpower in maintaining the plants.
Just across this premiere establishment located at Park Lane, the Grosvenor House Apartments is housed in a development constructed way back in 1912-1918. Only recently was it transformed into a super-deluxe boutique apart-hotel with a budget of £85 million. It now houses 133 luxury apartment units, some of them being five-bedroom penthouses. The transformation project was contracted by Sish UK with the architect Woods Bagot. The classy interiors were designed by Anouska Hempel Design. IOTA planters were recommended for use by Clive McDonnel Design while the planters were fitted by PHS Greenleaf.
Granite planters are resistant to most damage so they are recommended for both commercial and residential spaces. With a finely-speckled light grey finish, any minor damage incurred will not be immediately visible. The extra large granite variety is so durable it can even hold small trees. The vigorous root growth is no match for the sturdy granite slabs.
