As well as private residences, Charles Edwards is proud to have worked on many projects for the Heritage Department, Historic Royal Palaces and Royal Parks & Gardens.
In celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee, Kensington Palace opened new public gardens. The cast iron Loggia was carefully designed not to detract from the simplicity of the Georgian façade of the Palace. The Loggia, also know as the Diamond Jubilee Loggia, was central in providing a more coherent design to the 10 acre site. Two graveled paths from the Broad Walk, as well as a series of grass terraces studded with clipped yew, guide the visitor to the new entry.
Chris Topp was commissioned to design, manufacture & install the Loggia by Historic Royal Palaces, the independent charity that looks after Kensington Palace. The approved Loggia design has a glass roof and required a series of hanging lanterns.
