Planters create welcoming feature at Tobacco Dock

Planters create welcoming feature at Tobacco Dock

Furnitubes supplied 15 Pergone® gabion planters for Tobacco Dock in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Tobacco Dock is a Grade I listed warehouse in the Docklands area of London’s East End.

After an unsuccessful attempt in the 1990s to convert the structure into a shopping centre, the building has predominately been left almost entirely unoccupied. Tobacco Dock is now though regularly used for large corporate and commercial events, including as a location for filming music videos and television programmes, as well as a space for large dance events.

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets required a solution to prevent any further damage to the buildings historic façade which had previously been spoiled by overcrowded parking. Furnitubes supplied 15 Pergone® gabion planters, installed to create welcoming gaps between parking bays alongside the building. The new installations have been planted with shrubs and decorative grasses as an attractive contrast to the surrounding built environment.
