By London based garden designer Adolfo Harrison. This roof garden used cedar as a lightweight and enduring material to create dappled shade and shelter from the strong winds.
Chelsea Roof Garden Courtyard and Terrace

A 9m x 15m unused roof terrace in Chelsea was completely redesigned.

Elegant terrace garden in Knightsbridge
By London garden designer Charlotte Rowe. The owner of this Knightsbridge property had a really good space of around 70 square metres outside her drawing room which although at ground level and with access to a community garden, was constructed on top of her kitchen and her neighbour's apartment. Therefore, to all intents and purposes it is a roof terrace.
Roof garden in Holland Park
By London garden designer Charlotte Rowe. This unusual house in Holland Park has a good sized roof for which there was permission for use as a roof terrace.
Shoreditch roof garden
By Garden Designer Sue Amos. An abundance of bold and natural planting softens the hard edges of  this windswept roof terrace.
Garden in the sky - A rooftop garden
By Garden Designer Ruth Marshall. This garden in the heart of London's once industrial zone, is truly spectacular from all angles particularly when lit at night.
