Wardian is a world-first in housing design that champions botanically inspired living with an exceptional waterside location on the Isle of Dogs immediately south of Canary Wharf London. Wardian comprises two residential towers of 55 and 50-storeys, which contain 767 homes including suites, one and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses. Wardian is designed to connect residents with nature. The two towers sit above a podium containing a grand lobby space, retail tenants including coffee shop, The Expresso Room, and Botanical Boys terrarium shop, cinema room and a waterfront café. The project also features a dramatic rooftop observatory bar and a 25-metre open air swimming pool, set within a richly landscaped environment.
Wardian’s reputation as a leading botanically inspired development that sets a new standard for high-rise living is quickly growing. Characterised by its unique eco-concept, Wardian incorporates nature into generous private and communal spaces; providing an oasis in one of the capital’s most cosmopolitan and commercial centres. The scheme’s eco-friendly nature helps fight ecosystem crises and move London closer towards a greener city. With an ambitious commitment to incorporating the best of both worlds – proximity to the energising workplace and a green home environment – Wardian heralds a unique ‘bringing the outside in’ design theory that sets it apart from its competition.
