Inspired by the rugged coastal setting and views of Elizabeth Castle and its surrounding rock formations, we designed four large facetted sculptural planters to sit on the large shared terrace.  The client brief required flexibility to be a key consideration – hence we provided a mixture of terrace furniture, including seating, planters and art of work, without cluttering the space and blocking the circulation space or spectacular views.  Constructed from marine grade stainless steel and eco-friendly Accoya timber to withstand Jersey’s extreme coastal environment, the planters are also have an Aladdin’s Cave of other features including seating, concealed storage, LED lighting both underneath and inside and, of course, planting- in the form of marine species and sea grasses to add softness and compliment the coastal setting.
