We are approved & accredited members of the most respected standards in our industry.
Our clients were undertaking the renovation and extension of their converted warehouse penthouse that included building a pavilion style extension in the space to form a bathroom and bedroom. The extension is a fantastic architectural highlight of the property and our clients wanted a roof top garden space that would compliment the contemporary interior and flow with the architecture. A dining, cooking, lounging area and privacy were all in the remit for transforming the wrap around space.
We used a pedestal and joist system to support an oak effect, non-slip ‘Millboard’ decking, with a light finish that flows effortlessly with the interior surfaces. Working with our bespoke planter suppliers, we trialled a number of concrete-effect finishes in GRP (glass reinforced plastic), before selecting a finish that we were content with, to give a slightly industrial yet modern finish to the planters, contrasting against deep green foliage and a peppering of punchy flowers. The planters were designed to hide various services on the roof at staggered depths and heights and to accommodate a range of plants that suit the various conditions around the three terrace areas.
The three areas of this roof terrace now have slightly different atmospheres, whilst maintaining a consistent and contemporary look throughout. The seating areas feel secluded and cosy without losing the sense of place and rooftop atmosphere. A range of plants and flowers provide year-round interest, including herbs for cooking outdoors. The hardwearing surfaces add character and depth to the space and will stand the test of time. A very special space that is a valuable addition to the client’s property and lifestyle.
