The Brief.

Finsbury Park required a wide range of systems for this outdoor space to be used by university students in London. Sky Garden had to use all their experience and expertise to successfully bring the components together to create this beautiful finished project.
Our brief from the client was to unite the classic and modern buildings with an array of hard and soft landscaping finishes designed by UBU Landscape Designers. The landscaping needed to mirror the high spec and quality of the building and meet the stringent planning conditions imposed onto the development.


What we did

Surrounding the roof area are a number of hand-crafted timber planters and fencing. High quality wood and our skilled carpenters create the boundaries of this striking space. The planters are fitted with lighting to bring the roof to life in the evenings. Raised wooded seating areas and benches give places for the students to sit back and relax in their new amenity space. Large areas of artificial turf bring colour to the roof, and bring a clean, low-maintenance finish that the students can enjoy all year round.

  • Resin-bound gravel
  • Block paving
  • Raised planters with benches
  • Artificial turf
  • Composite decking

The result

Two types of paving, along with our resin-bound gravel system, are permeable and allow rainwater to drain efficiently into the sophisticated sub layers across the entire roof. The striking grey colours give a clean,
contemporary feel to the amenity space.
