Gardens Designed on Roof Terraces

Roof Garden Oasis Hampstead

Designed by Manoj Malde. The owner bought this penthouse with the prospect of creating a roof garden. The space was a blank canvas.

East Barnet Roof Terrace Garden

Designed by Gillie Leaf Garden Design. This very large, north-facing roof terrace had an extremely exposed and open aspect. The brief was to replicate the modern and airy style of the apartment. The roof terrace was rather bleak and bare apart from a dining table and chairs and a wooden bench.

Chelsea roof garden

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.
