Urban Roof Gardens

Victoria 2, London

One of the two terraces of this penthouse, this terrace brings echoes of both Provence and the cubist hillside villages of Santorini. Individually crafted terracotta planters, of different heights and sizes, provide for both decorative planting as well as a working allotment for fruit and vegetables. A crunchy gravel path meanders between the planters, with perforated Sardinian brick walls dividing the space and allowing protection from the wind to both planting and people.
