Gallery: Rooftop Garden by The White Room Creates a Peaceful Escape Abo...

 

Hovering above the concrete jungle of the Bandra neighborhood in Mumbai, ‘The Rooftop Garden’ by The White Room is a space of respite away from the chaos and clatter of the city. The 1500 sq ft rooftop is conceived as a pleasure garden where one can watch the sun set into the Arabian Sea and the birds fly across the sky. The garden is formed as an organic and free-flowing arched canopy that encompasses the whole length of the terrace. The canopy starts from the floor and slowly raises to a level where it becomes the roof for the patio. Empty spaces have been filled with hardy plant varieties like palms, lantanas and wild grass, and a peaceful stretch of lawn lies over the top of the canopy for inhabitants to sprawl out and enjoy the night sky.

    Hi Inhabitat,
    if people in india’s most crowded city can do it, we urbanites in other cities can’t complain of lack of green space. or is it because necessity is the mother of invention…
