Warehouse Apartment Roof Garden

This small but precisely detailed roof-garden was completed in 2013 and has since flourished under the care of its owners. Aluminium planters were made to fit the tile format which sit on pedestals to protect the waterproofing membrane beneath and provide space for hardy decorative and herb planting. The lush green native plants compliment the bright green wall behind to simplify and calm the small space while providing a colourful contrast to the silvered hardwood wind screen, seat and table setting. The black vertical steel balustrade echoes the shape of the original warehouse wall and provides a safe but transparent barrier to make the most of the urban views beyond.
