Contemporary Roof Terrace: Garden Builders - MaryleboneContemporary Deck, London
The Garden Builders
What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Carve out curves. Adding curves can help tone down the feeling of being surrounded by hard-edged man-made structures and make a rooftop terrace feel more like a garden. In this rooftop in London’s Marylebone area, for example, the designer created curves through multiple methods. A custom curved bench snakes around a round outdoor table, forming an inviting seating area and defining the edge of the planting bed. The metal fountain is also in a loose S-curve shape rather than a more common vertical plane. While not a curve, per se, the decking set at a diagonal also visually breaks up the boxy space formed by the surrounding buildings.
