Design and Build

NEO Bankside
London

NEO Bankside is a high profile residential development situated next to Tate Modern. This ambitious project was a joint venture with Native Land and Grosvenor, with Frosts appointed as landscape contractor.

The award winning landscape design features a series of richly detailed garden spaces around the footprint of the apartment pavilions. The completed landscape includes soft planting inspired by native woodlands, harmonising with the contemporary lines of the buildings.  

Almost uniquely in the heart of the city, the outdoor space at NEO Bankside offers residents the opportunity to engage with nature, within a new micro-ecological environment in this established urban setting. The elegant and peaceful landscaped gardens integrate NEO Bankside with neighbouring Tate Modern and its surroundings, and provide public access during the day as well as a secure, private environment for residents to enjoy.

Frosts earned multiple industry awards for delivery of the hard and soft landscaping which valued in excess of £2M and included:

  • design detailing of all landscape elements
  • drainage across entire site
  • granite paving installation (1300m2)
  • tree pit installation with silva cells
  • subsoil/topsoil development
  • semi mature tree planting
  • mixed planting (1300m2)
  • automated irrigation installation
  • biodiverse green roof construction (several locations)

Construction of the Neo Bankside scheme presented significant challenges in terms of site restriction, confined working space and coordination with other trades.

NEO Bankside has won multiple industry awards:

  • 2013 BALI Principal Award Winner for Soft Landscaping
  • 2013 BALI Principal Award Winner for Hard Landscaping
  • 2013 Sunday Times British Home Awards for Best Landscaped Development
  • 2012 International Property Awards for Best Landscape Architecture (London) and Best Architecture (UK)
  • 2012 New Homes and Gardens Gold Award for Best Communal Garden/Landscape
  • 2012 New Homes and Gardens Gold Award for Best Landscaped Urban Development
