Rooftop gardens and rooftop terraces let you reach for the stars and the only limit on what you can design in your exclusive oasis is your imagination. Rooftop gardens also inject a lovely note of green into the cityscape and improve the microclimate. People grow their own vegetables or use grass and shrubs to frame an opulent lounge area or pool. This book showcases private rooftop gardens and terraces from around the world. You’ll see everything from spectacular high-rise penthouses and clever retrofit solutions to award-winning sustainable homes. They all convey the unique feeling of living between heaven and earth. Peace and relaxation are the focus in these slices of paradise, places where you can quite literally sit back and watch the world go by.
