ROOF TERRACE



Location:  West London, UK

Use Type:  Private roof garden

Status: in development

Role: Landscape architect with Megan Burke

 

Our inspiration for a roof design was the surreal idea of using boat construction on the top of a building, and creating a great entertaining space. The two shifting grids derived from the views provide the basis for organizing the space with different functions. The views from the roof were analyzed to see which ones should be emphasized or which hidden.
