The Financial Times featured Roots in the Sky recently in a thoughtful piece by Tabi Jackson Gee recognising the lengths we’re going to on the project to reprioritise nature.
Working hand in hand with Chelsea Gold Medal-winning landscape architects Harris Bugg Studio we’re setting new standards in building a landscape and ecosystem from scratch across over one acre of rooftop Urban Forest.
Even down to building log piles off site now to start propagating stag beetle larvae so that we can establish a colony of the flagship protected species, alongside a whole host of other invertebrates, insects and birds.
It’s all about habitat creation – working with nature rather than against it – and designing biodiversity back into our cities in a meaningful way.
