Boulevard KYOTO and QUADRA planters
The Royal Opera, based in the iconic Covent Garden theatre in London, is one of the world’s leading opera companies. It is renowned both for its outstanding performances of traditional opera and for commissioning new works by leading contemporary opera composers.
Completed in September 2018, the Royal Opera House building has undergone a £50m transformative remodelling, designed by architects Stanton Williams.
IOTA’s Boulevard KYOTO and QUADRA planters were selected as part of the remodelling of the glazed terrace of Restaurant Level 5, which has unrivalled views over Covent Garden piazza.
The planting scheme was created and installed by the multi award-winning Design Studio and Landscaping team at Rosebank Landscaping.
Overall 33 planters were supplied for the project, selected from KYOTO and QUADRA stock designs in RAL 7016 [Anthracite grey] colour.
Boulevard planters are a range of high-performance composite planters made from a proprietary form of Fibre Reinforced Cement [FRC]. All Boulevard planters possess an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, making them suitable for a wide range of environments – from weight-restricted areas, to interiors, to public spaces and streetscapes.
