JDS Architects designed a set of three penthouse apartments and on top of them, placed a 1,000 sq meter rooftop terrace for the residents’ use. The firm’s idea was to create a “missing garden” above the apartments to provide a private and safe place to play and enjoy the outdoors. Of course, not everyone has $1.3 million to pimp out their roof with a playground, a grassy knoll and a sun deck, but hey, we’re not jealous (yeah right).

Kids and adults alike are already enjoying the shock absorbing, bright orange playground space, the rolling staircases and the lookout point on top of the access staircase. There’s even supposed to be a suspension bridge somewhere in the mix. It seems a little surprising that there isn’t a shady zone, but then again, when it’s sunny in Copenhagen, you probably just soak as much in as you can. JDS Architects completed the rooftop park in the spring of 2011 with the help of PLOT, BIG and EKJ.
