The upper level two-bedroom apartment has been refurbished and reorganised to provide stair access to the terrace above through a new skylight. The balustrade of the terrace, with black metal railings is set back from the perimeter, so it is not visible from the road.
While the accessible areas of roof terrace are decked and tiled, the borders of the roof parapets have been planted with low maintenance grasses on a sedum mat to foster local biodiversity and improve the setting of the roof garden. A black painted steel pergola provides cover for outdoor sitting, and a simple kitchen unit with sink and stove has been installed for al-fresco preparation of food and dining. From the top of the building, fantastic views are available across the rooftops of Shoreditch towards the City of London, and so a barren flat roof has become an urban garden connected to the city through vistas, and domestic use.
