Located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, 375 Kensington High Street is a flagship development in one of London’s most sought after addresses. At its heart a water feature surrounded by box headed trees and a landscaped central courtyard. The water feature comprises two slate clad rectangular pools with 4 vertical columnar jets in each; each jet projecting vertically and producing a foaming white water column up to 1m in height and approximately 30mm diameter. The exterior of each pool, in keeping with surrounding hand-landscaping features, is formed from limestone procured from Spain.
Residents of 375 Kensington High Street can enjoy a beautifully landscaped courtyard inspired by London’s traditional garden squares, along with a newly designed water feature creating a tranquil and ambient distraction from the vibrant Kensington High Street.
A dry mounted pumping system located within the plant room provides the supply to each jet nozzle by pumping water from a holding tank also located within the plant room. A weir edge within each raised pool allows water to fall into the two collection channels below where each drainage channel is protected by a stainless steel grille to prevent large debris from passing through and into the system.
An effective and user-friendly filtration and chemical treatment system has been installed to maintain water quality. All filtration and water treatment equipment is served by a filtration pump within the plant room; this pump draws water from the holding tank and circulates it through the filtration and treatment system before returning to the tank. A separate pump from the feature display allows the water to be treated when the feature is shut down at night or as programmed.
