Multifunctional steps were created all around the terrace allow people to sit comfortably or use them, as well as hiding bulky tree roots.

The roof garden’s heart has a hexagonal communal table with trees sprouting and a glazed core. Attracting people as well as plenty of birds and butterflies, the trees all around it help to filter out noise and excess sun while purifying the air. A unique secluded space within one of the world’s busiest shopping districts, this green roof garden provides a break for the most fashionable urban residents.

The entrance to Tokyu Plaza Omotesando is through a kaleidoscope-like tunnel that reflects fashionable visitors in a dazzling effect. But passing the shops and right at the top, a green terrace is the perfect place to relax in a setting that is surrounded by plants, trees, birds and other people. Multifunctional steps were created all around the terrace allow people to sit comfortably around the edge of the park.
