Project Description

This 700 square meters roof garden is a place for sunbathing and evening gatherings under large willow trees away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.  We wanted it to be a shaded area, with a very good sense of enclosure that provides intimacy and tranquility.

We had more room for maneuvering with different plant species as we faced less environmental limitations in terms of light but had more limitations to alter an existing design. Flower beds had to be raised to let them accommodate large willow trees that will fully dominate the roof area in the years to come.
