fulham wins bali award
10 January 2017
Fulham Riverside has won the Principal Award for Green Roof Installations and Roof Gardens category at the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) National Landscape Awards 2016.
At the beginning of December, fabrik joined fellow landscape consultants, contractors and suppliers in celebrating 40 years of the BALI awards. The ceremony is held annually to recognise and celebrate members who have demonstrated exceptionally high standards of professionalism and skill in the execution of a wide variety of landscape schemes.
The roof gardens at Fulham Riverside, are located above a flagship Sainsbury’s superstore. Situated at the centre of the development, on the third and fourth floor, the roof gardens provide a tranquil retreat from the busy city for the surrounding residents.
Covering approximately 2 acres the large gardens are divided into a series of interlinked contemporary formal spaces. The multi-level space is woven together by water rills channelling water through the gardens before cascading over a 3m high water wall to the floor below. Natural materials, clay pavers and bespoke furniture create a strong and dynamic ground pattern that is complemented by blocks of ornamental planting and hedges that act as a subtle backdrop for the mature tree planting.
The judges noted the challenges of delivering a scheme of this scale and quality, when working at height and as part of a phased completion.
"This was a logistically challenging and complex roof garden scheme... The result is a crisp and very pleasing scheme, providing a wonderful outlook for the adjacent homes"
fabrik would like to congratulate Elite Landscapes who realised our design, Barratt London who were a fantastically supportive client in understanding the vision for the scheme from an early stage and the numerous suppliers who worked together to deliver this award winning scheme.
