Multi-level Roof Terrace

Working for London property developers, Residence One, in association with interior designers Laura Hammett Ltd, we created this large stylish roof terrace on the first floor of an elegant newly developed town house in the heart of Belgravia.

The project consists of three outdoor areas at the rear of the property on different levels. The first being a small basement courtyard, planted with cloud topiary Myrtle and two sofas. One level up there is a narrow balcony planted with clipped Buxus balls in powder-coated metal planters. The final level is a large roof terrace, paved in limestone, with a boundary of artificial Boxwood hedging in powder-coated containers.

The terrace is dressed with lovely outdoor sofas and a dining table that seats six people. Four large, old, Olea Europea trees are strategically placed to divide the areas into different zones.

The roof terrace before

Unused for several years, this roof terrace was in an awful state with rotten decking, unsecure fencing and crumbling walls. Following the redevelopment of the entire house, the terrace was renovated to the highest standard to match the interior.

Logistical issues

As with mainly roof terraces, access was difficult. Four large olive trees had to be crane lifted over the house with only inches of clearance. The resulting effect on the terrace was well worth the hassle.
