Knightsbridge Roof Terrace

This late 19th century property in Knightsbridge London was selected by one of the leading luxury international property developers, to renovate into luxury apartments with an adjoining roof terrace to the rear. Aralia were appointed, together with a multidisciplinary team of architects, engineers and interior designers to overcome the sites constraints and create a beautiful and very high quality roof terrace London garden. In the short term, the roof terrace served to attract buyers by reflecting the high level of quality associated with this particular developer as well as innovative design solutions to combat a very difficult site, whilst in the long term having to provide a series of very elegant and contemporary garden spaces.

Typical of many small London terrace gardens, this garden came with many constraints, particularly relating to privacy. The terrace was sandwiched between two terrace rows and therefore was significantly overlooked by the adjacent neighbouring property, together with apartments on upper floors. The design of this space had to carefully consider how privacy could be achieved without limiting the existing light levels which, due to its aspect, were far from ideal. Another constraint was the fact that the terrace was on a podium above the basement level and therefore weight limitations and any build up requirements were very restricted, and therefore had to be carefully coordinated with the project engineer.
