Bristol Harbourside Floating Gardens

Within the Bristol Harbourside project we set out to create a sustainable urban drainage system that would support a variety of inner city habitats; including green roofs, elevated green walls and a system of floating reed beds.

The Floating reed beds dramatically changed the waterfront, activating the space for both people and wildlife.  The seasonal changes compliment the ever changing calendar of events within the harbourside, and the pontoon decks allow people to escape the crowds and take in the views.

The floating reed beds and green roofs have been published by Bristol City Council in their latest green development guide as best practice.
