Soho Rooftop

Taking design cues from the north end of the terrace, which had been designed in 2002 by another landscape architect, RKLA designed the rooftop terrace as a private retreat and entertaining space for the owners of this penthouse loft in Soho. The terrace features multi-level garden spaces, a green roof featuring vegetable, herb and fruit plantings as well as unique storage and screening solutions.

Although not evident in the final design of the garden, the relocation at the start of the project of the client’s large air conditioning unit, which is now tucked behind the roof bulkhead and concealed with plantings and a wood screen, had an immense impact on the flow of the garden spaces both in terms of their visual connection and circulation.
