Large Roof Terrace - Old Street

Date: July 2002

Type: Roof Gardens

Client: Private Clients

This large roof terrace in busy Old Street was overlooked by offices and flats. Louvered trellis panels and hedges of bamboo and grasses helped to screen both the view and the noise.

The deck and benches are constructed from the hardwood, Ipe and are broken up with an area of blue grey slate paving in the centre. Hollow galvanised steel beams have been used to create the pergola from which sails can be hung to give shade.

Light weight galvanised planters were specially made in various sizes and shapes and an automated irrigation system makes sure that everything is well watered and does not dry out in the wind.
