The Shard Case Study
Stuart Canvas installed the SCP Deluxe Carpet at The View from The Shard on the observation deck on the 72nd floor, to accommodate London’s highest summer garden space 800ft above the city.
The installation was completed with the help of Synthetic Turf Management and took 1 night to complete.
Taking months to prepare and over 350 man-hours to fully install, national floral favourites including poppies, fox gloves, lavender, marigolds and birch trees have been planted in more than 10,000 litres of soil, set amongst a further 750 metres of decorative foliage.The sky deck at the top of Western Europe’s tallest building has been transformed with over 2,000 plants and flowers to celebrate the Great British Summertime.
Guests may book a Sky-High Tea picnic from Fortnum & Mason , with their visit from 23 June, or enjoy a gin-and-tonic flavoured ice-cream whilst taking in the panoramic views for up to 40 miles !
