Private Terraces behind high walls in London. I think this is multi unit residential, but not sure. Nonetheless, would make a cool urban Townhouse, or urban terrace design, though I would add more colorful flora, but NICE!!! 🙂

These are wonderful examples. I especially love the metropolitan rooftop gardens, which bring Nature up close for a direct experience. They evoke the feeling of being on an island. There should be more flat-top buildings in cities for that very reason. I grew up in the middle of an urban jungle so I know how disconnected one can get without the renewal Nature offers. What a clever and special way to enjoy normally unused space.


love the poste !!! love the vertical wall.
I too have the same problem as you. Killing heat/sunshine over the summer months that burn my leaves and kill my plants. I am trying to think of a way to build a shelter for the plants from the sun.
Thank you for your intelligent post and for helping others become more aware. You made more sense than others who speak within this same area of expertise and I am really glad I found your blog-website. I’ve joined your social networks and will keep an eye out for future great posts as well. Additionally, I have shared your site in my social networks as well. Thank you again!
