Savoy Hotel, New Roof Garden
Competition Entry The Mikado Garden,
Students and alumni of the London School of Garden Design were invited to present ideas in a competition to redesign the roof terrace in the centre of London’s famous Savoy Hotel.
We looked at the history of the hotel and learnt that the it was largely built from the proceeds of over 650 performances of The Mikado comic opera at the adjoining Savoy Theatre. Drawing inspiration from this, the proposed concept is a Japanese inspired space, complete with lanterns that float high above a garden of elegant terraces surrounded by ornamental grasses, bamboo and Japanese maples.
As yet no winner has been announced.
