The bold lines of visionary man-made geometry contrast with the organic, verdant shapes of nature. Wardian London sets a new standard for the high-rise living experience, drawing from the heyday of modernist architecture and the finest elements of modern building design. The formal, bold lines of a visionary man-made geometry are complemented by the organic, verdant shapes of nature.
On the skyline, beheld from a distance, the two modernist-influenced towers are striking yet simple, refined and yet ambitious, with a glimpse of green hinting at the wonders within.
Amid the urban cityscape. Wardian offers a beautiful private sanctuary. Throughout the development are large glass cases filled with trees and plant life. These are not just for decoration but can be entered, a series of private gardens bringing to mind the botanic palmhouses found in great collecting gardens like Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
Every residence boasts an individual private garden. It’s a simple difference, but a game changer: Wardian’s apartments do not just have balconies but fully-fledged private gardens. The spacious exteriors mean the benefit of an expansive outdoor area, rare in such a central setting, is granted to each apartment.
Kitchen cabinets incorporate glass cases, designed to echo the garden cases downstairs. Natural materials such as marble, wood and glass are used to stunning effect, their organic patterns harnessed as if artworks.
Each apartment comes complete with a generous private garden, that can, if so wished, play host to a beautiful landscape of plants and flowers, a personal slice of the Wardian vision.
Floor to ceiling windows maximise sightlines and bathe apartments in the stunning Docklands light. Whether your tastes lean towards modernist furniture or classic vinyl, this is the perfect place to relax or entertain friends.
Designed in collaboration with Glenn Howells architects, Wardian comprises two residential towers of 55 and 50-storeys which contain 766 homes including suites, one and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses. Instantly recognisable by their generous wrap-around balconies and slender profiles, the towers land onto a two-storey podium, housing a grand lobby, pool, and restaurant and retail outlets. Every resident will become a member of The Wardian Club, allowing access to exclusive facilities including a 25m open air swimming pool, gym, cinema, two restaurants and a double height rooftop sky garden with mature trees. A 24 hour concierge service is also provided.
Wardian London was inspired by the great explorer and innovator Dr Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward who was responsible for the creation of the Wardian Case, used to transport plants around the world at the height of the British Empire. The core vision was to harmonise man-made design with the natural world and the scheme carefully balances nature and human invention by combining the bold exterior with equally bold landscape design. International plant experts have sourced more than a hundred different species of exotic plants and flowers from across the world reflecting those that were first transported to London by Wardian Cases including the exceptionally rare Wollemi Pine. These plants are used throughout the development and will change with the seasons, evoking the botanic palm houses at Kew and creating a tranquil oasis that brings the outside in.
