CW Studio has created a multi-use urban landscape scheme for a high-end residential development in Manchester city centre which features a rooftop running track on the 15th floor. The landscape also includes an internal glazed courtyard, a rooftop garden and a green roof.
With the project focusing on ‘well-being’ we continued this theme with the landscape and planting by creating secluded seating areas in the rooftop garden to create a relaxing and inspiring living space. The lush planting is designed to create a retreat from busy city living and to promote a feeling of wellness and calm. A variety of trees, shrubs and perennial planting provides shelter, shade and privacy for residents and relaxing spaces for small groups.
The scheme is based in Castlefield, a historic area on the edge of Manchester city centre.
