There are up to 10 private allotments planned and a communal ‘summer kitchen’ set within perennial planting with a work table and space for barbecues, for residents of the exclusive apartments being built in the 15-storey Foster + Partner development next to the power station.
They form part of a 355m-long garden designed to afford residents panoramic views of London and the power station building.
Also featured is a fitness deck which can be used for gatherings such as children’s parties, a sun deck with a bar, a grass meadow and a woodland walk through a birch tree copse, where the white trunks of the trees will reference the power station chimneys beyond.
Corner, of Field Operations, said the design would provide "an extraordinarily serene yet dynamic place to view the power station, the Thames river, the City of London and the surrounding context. The design of pathways, plantings, overlooks, furniture and special settings offer an air of theatricality and drama in the sky."
Senior executive at Foster + Partner Grant Brooker said the garden would be spectacular and very special.
"There is simply no roof garden like this in any private development in the world."
Andy Sturgeon has also designed roof gardens at the development, on the power station building itself.
