GreenBlue Urban was involved in the tree planting aspect, from concept to design and installation, of 4 Liquidambar trees at the streetscape redevelopment of Selfridges Department Store, Duke Street, London.

Objective

The public realm development objective was to upgrade the eastern side of the store as the new focal point entrance to include new paving, furniture, a new stone bench and stone drinking water fountain made of Italian marble.

Work undertaken

Two years of design team meetings alongside Djao Rakitine, WSP and Sir Robert McAlpine enabled GreenBlue Urban to be fully immersed in the tree pit detail to ensure optimal tree growth with minimal maintenance, selection of the trees at a specialised nursery based in the Netherlands, along with the design and manufacture of 4 custom handmade brass tree grilles.

Outcome

Installation was a resounding success having worked with key contractors including Nurture Landscapes who fully support the GBU tree pit concept.
