Set on the edge of Green Park in the heart of London, The Ritz is one of the world’s finest and most recognisable hotels, providing five-star luxury for over a century.

As part of a remodeling and extension programme, Indigo was commissioned to prepare concept designs for a new courtyard, while also advising on green roofs, sculptural elements, and streetscape enhancements. The courtyard design option featured was inspired by Michelangelo’s Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome, setting a ‘Renaissance mood’ embellished by Italian Cypress trees in planters, while allowing flexibility of function.

Key Inputs:

  • Hard landscape design
  • Planting design
  • Streetscape enhancements
  • Green roof design
