We were delighted to discover yesterday that our Award Winning Chelsea Creek Roof Terrace project has been shortlisted for another award. Already much acclaimed and winner of 2 prestigious awards including the BALI Design Excellence Award in 2015, the project has made the exclusive shortlist for the inaugural ‘Podium Awards‘ in the Domestic Design category. The awards were launched by Pro Landscaper in 2019 to recognise the best in the industry for design and build in the creation of gardens over buildings, car parks and other structures, known in the industry as ‘podium landscapes’. This is a growing niche, particularly in urban areas, where in both commercial and domestic environments, clients are keen to use their space to the maximum.
The Podium Awards showcase and recognise skill, management and expertise, whilst displaying innovative use of products and critically, overcoming of obstacles such as logistical issues as well as structural and safety considerations, often under very tight deadlines.
Aralia’s design for Chelsea Creek is outstanding in a number of ways. We had to operate within a very tight timeframe (from appointment to initial concepts within 2 weeks for a whole series of roof gardens). The ground-breaking series of rooftop gardens embraces the very latest in garden design, encompassing quality natural materials whilst introducing contemporary state of the art features such as outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces, water features, pergolas and green walls. The landscapes created are of stunning impact and the highest quality, despite the constraints placed upon us by the nature of the site and the brief.

The winners will be announced at Futurescape Spring on 12th March 2019. Wish us luck!
