The garden on the roofs



Terrazza di una casa a Trastevere

Location Rome, Italy

Year 2011

Desciption The project’s challenge was to obtain both a "living room" and a "dining room" from the limited dimensions of the space, including a strong presence of plants and flowers, bushes and small trees. Steel, sinuous and bright-coloured flowers boxes accept the challenge creating a rich and articulated space, which changes the scale of the terrace. Different environments develop where, as in a garden, the different essences have the possibility to dialogue and compose themselves shifting from point of chromatic accumulation to great expanses of green.
