Knightsbridge Japanese Roof Terrace
Following the complete interior renovation of a handsome Georgian property in London with the views out to the garden room being framed as part of the split level interior, this small roof terrace forms an important centrepiece within the house.
Large square paving has been laid on an angle to the walls to provide a more dynamic space and make the garden room feel larger. By painting the walls white and having a pale coloured paving, the overall light has been increased in what would otherwise be a relatively dark space.
Acer palmatum, bamboo and ferns with lush green foliage ensure this Japanese themed garden is calm and inviting . Inclusion of the clients' collection of Japanese garden statuary was part of the brief; positioning them within the raised planted beds increases their promimence. The Japanese theme is further encouraged by the mirrored glass feature mounted in granite.
