Rooftop Terrace Designs – Small Urban Oases
There’s probably nothing that can match a rooftop terrace when it comes to spaces that invite to profound relaxation. Apart from the intimacy they abundantly provide, the views are unrivaled, directly contributing to unique moments under the open sky. Other than a space where we find ourselves in the open air, these rooftop terraces can also play practical roles, such as storage spaces or mini-gardens where you can grow veggies and fruits. Below are several rooftop terrace designs, from simple to complex arrangements.
Simple, yet efficient! A terrace on a small rooftop, surrounded by a screen for extra intimacy, a table and a few chairs and a bench flanked by plants which enliven the space – it doesn’t take more to create the perfect set for consummate respite.
If you have enough space, then nature can claim more territory without taking too much of the area destined for tranquility, but merely completing it.
It’s hard to imagine the rooftop of a block of flats in a busy city can cohabit with so much greenery. It is possible indeed and the whole space can even be the perfect set for a whole party.
Different shapes, colors and volumes, all perfectly blending in an inert space which comes to life thanks to the vegetation surrounding it and which also provides a bit of discretion for those spending time under the open sky.
A living rooftop! Nature seems be at home in this image describing a two level terrace which appears to be a sector in a botanical garden. A pergola on a rooftop is truly an original presence which gives the space a touch of elegance.
Wood and brick, in a perfect symbiosis on the rooftop of an old building. The furniture items are an integral part of the landscape, with the lounge chair being the most stylish presence. An extra proof any space can come to life with a little effort and some imagination.
And since we mentioned terraces on rooftops in the crowded Western cities, let’s now take a look at a similar space in the Oriental world. Discreet and comfortable, this rooftop terrace in Morocco radiates a mystic air in which one can surely find the perfect serenity.
