Futuristic roof garden opens to the public in Hammersmith, London

The Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith and environmental charity Groundwork London are behind the remarkable garden, which is now open to the public. The garden was developed from a sketch on a paper napkin into a futuristic oasis of subtle lighting, sustainable timber decking, low planters, seating, shrubs and trees. Designed by RHS Gold award winning landscape architects, Adam White and Andrée Davies, the garden fits in perfectly with the Lyric’s own community-involvement programme and for those living in the Ashcroft housing estate right next door, will be a much needed green retreat in a heavily built up part of London.
