Baring Asset Management
The development of the two roof gardens was initiated in 2010, with three principal aims: to improve the immediate views from the meeting rooms, increase the flexibility of Barings' hospitality facilities and make a positive environmental impact.
The two gardens have their own characteristics, the northern terrace being inspired by Asia and the southern terrace by Europe. Feature plants include a 70-year-old cork oak (Quercus suber
) and arches made from Japanese larch (Larix kaempferi
On the Asian terrace there is a Quercus dentata (commonly known as the Daimyo Oak) which has been grown as a miniature form yet retains the leaf size of a fully grown tree. Other species found on the terraces include yew, Gingko, a Judas Tree (Cercis siliquastrum), camellia and acer.
The gardens are now part of life at Barings, enhancing both staff events and client hospitality, and include herbs and fruit trees which are used in the food produced by our kitchens. Charles Funke, who designed the gardens, remains involved in the development of the terraces.
